Sunday, November 13, 2016, at 2 p.m.

with

George Oscar Lee
Holocaust Survivor, Chief of Police and Fire Departments in Föhrenwald DP camp

and

John Friedman
Producer, “Hôtel Terminus:
The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie”

Holocaust Survivor George Oscar Lee took up residence in the Föhrenwald Displaced Persons (DP) camp in Germany shortly after liberation. On his second day in the camp, he saw smoke coming from one of the survivors’ apartments. Mr. Lee ran in and extinguished the flames. Realizing that the camp lacked a fire brigade, he took it upon himself to create one. He was also disappointed with the few ragtag residents who called themselves police and transformed them into a well-trained, professional police force. Mr. Lee will share some of his experiences and be available for Q&A.

Also speaking will be journalist and documentary filmaker John Friedman, producer of the Academy Award-winning documentary, Hôtel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie. Mr. Friedman is currently documenting Mr. Lee’s life.

$10 suggested donation to attend. To RSVP contact Deborah Lom at (516) 571-8040 or dlom@hmtcli.org.
