Holocaust survivor Fred Gross was in the tri-state on Sunday, speaking to a packed room at the Temple Adath B’Nai Israel in Evansville.
Through his talks, he wants people to understand how many lives were lost during the holocaust and wants to be a voice for those that died.
He tells his story across Kentucky and Indiana, and believes it’s important for the young people to hear it.
Gross says, “To educate the young people that it’s going to be their responsibility to make this a better world and to fight for what they believe in justly, [is] very important. We depend upon the young people to tell our story.”
The temple is also featuring an exhibit showing the horrors of the holocaust, which will be on display until February 17.
The murals were created by students who are part of Western Kentucky University’s Gifted and Talented camp.
