Event Details

Charles Moman presents a Holocaust Program, “My Journey to Auschwitz,” at the Dubois County Museum on Thursday, January 24, at 6:00pm.

Moman will have a presentation on his recent visits to Auschwitz, the famed Nazi death camp located in Poland, and the knowledge he gathered on the Holocaust.  The program is free of charge and is open to adults and youth age 12 or older. The Friends of the Library will serve refreshments.

Charles Moman, Seymour resident and retired Seymour Community School’s teacher, traveled to Poland twice to visit Auschwitz and other Nazi Death Camps in 2015. On many of his visits he accompanied Eva Kor, an Auschwitz survivor and of the CANDLES Holocaust Museum. Eva Kor and her twin were experimented on by Dr. Josef Mengele at the Auschwitz camp. He also visited two other Nazi death camps Treblinka and Majdanek. In addition, this past October, Moman traveled again with Eva Kor to Romania to visit her home village and other Holocaust-related sites.

Mr. Moman is an accomplished photographer and he will be using his images throughout his 90-minute talk. The talk includes basic information about the Holocaust, as well details about his trips to Poland.
