A secondgeneration Holocaust survivor shared her

first_imgA second-generation Holocaust survivor shared her father’s stories this week at an event observing the tragedy.Ann Mollengarden’s father, Robert May, was born in Camberg, Germany, but had to flee with his family when Adolf Hitler came into power. Mollengarden spoke on her father’s behalf this week in the Ferguson Student Center ballroom on the University of Alabama campus.Mollengarden’s main goal was to share the research she had done to understand what actually happened to him during the Holocaust. A PowerPoint with pictures and documents from May’s youth were used to help tell his story. The ballroom was also decorated with a traveling exhibit of banners that shared stories of survivors who had relocated to Alabama. Mollengarden said there is a lot to learn from her family’s story.“There are many lessons, which I will talk about tonight, that we can learn from this point in history and in telling his story we give a personal perspective to the events that occurred and then we can sort of create our own lessons from what happened to him,” she said.May is still alive at the age of 93 to still share his stories.last_img
