In observance of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Robert Behr, a Holocaust survivor, spoke about his experiences living in a ghetto labor camp on April 10 in Bucknell Hall.

Behr recalled his childhood experiences, from the time his father was arrested and sent to Buchenwald until he and his family were sent to the concentration camp, Theresienstadt. He was forced to transport bodies for burial until the camp was liberated in 1945.

Behr then described his transition from the concentration camp to his experience working for the United States Army. His time in the United States Army was short-lived, at which point he joined the Air Force civil service as an intelligence officer.

The event, sponsored by Campus Jewish Life and Bucknell Hillel, was well attended by students and professors, in commemoration of the somber memorial.
