Holocaust Stories

Photo detail

Holocaust survivors Felix Nicinski and Dr. Maria Dworzecka with Student Ambassador Brian Garrett-Glazer. Garrett-Glazer, a May graduate of George Mason University, was ‘honored to be given the opportunity to facilitate the conversation’ at the table at which Nicinski and Dworzecka shared their stories of the Holocaust. WWe are so bombarded with the breaking-news syndrome. This is a chance to hear the personal story and feel its powerful impact.” Nicinski, who lost his family during the Holocaust, described trying to readjust to “normal” life after being liberated. “I hadn’t held a toothbrush in my hand in 5 years. I hadn’t sat down to eat a meal in all the time. It took awhile before things started to feel normal.”
