Survivor Presentations

Every second Sunday of the month at 12:30 pm, the public has the unique opportunity to hear a Holocaust survivor tell their story and answer questions. On May 10, 2015, Steen Metz will share his story.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASteen Metz was born in Odense, Denmark, in 1935. In the fall of 1943, approximately 450 Danish Jews (about 5% of the country’s Jewish population) were rounded up and sent to Terezin (Theresienstadt), including Steen and his parents. Steen’s father died of starvation after six months. Steen and his mother remained in Terezin for eighteen months. In April, 1945, the Swedish Red Cross picked up 423 surviving Danish Jews from Terezin, including Steen and his mother, and brought them to Copenhagen. The camp was liberated less than a month later. Steen and his mother remained in Denmark, where he completed his education. He immigrated to Canada in 1960 and to the United States in 1962.

Free with Museum admission.
