Local resident and Holocaust survivor Hugo Schiller presents a lecture on his memories and experiences. At 9 years old, Schiller was deported from Grunsfeld, Germany, to Gurs, a concentration camp in France. His parents were transported to and executed at Auschwitz, and Schiller moved to a children’s home. In 1942, Schiller was smuggled out of France and sent to the U.S. He has been a resident of Myrtle Beach since 1967 and, along with his wife, Ellie, realized his dream of having an area Holocaust memorial built in 2016.

This lecture is presented in conjunction with “Holocaust Remembered: An Exhibit of the Columbia Holocaust Education Center,” on display March 6-22 on the first floor of CCU’s Kimbel Library.
