The Rubin Feldman Memorial Lecture presents Under Swiss Protection: The Story of Holocaust Rescuer Carl Lutz

February 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join us for a fascinating morning with our guest speakers, Agnes Hirschi-Grausz and Dr. Charlotte Schallie, for their presentations on the life of Carl Lutz, who served as the Swiss Vice-Consul in Budapest, Hungary from 1942 until the end of World War II. He is credited with saving over 50,000 Jews, the largest rescue operation of Jews of the Second World War. He was awarded the honor of Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem in 1965.
It is interesting to note that, years before undertaking his heroic efforts, Carl Lutz was educated in Missouri and worked in downtown St. Louis from 1933-1934.
