Holocaust survivor Dr. Zsuzsanna Ozsváth will talk about her experience as a schoolgirl in Hungary during World War II at 10 a.m. on Monday, January 9 at King of Glory Lutheran Church. The presentation is part of the Gusto!  event series.

Ozsváth and her immediate family survived the final days of the war with the help of her nanny and dear friend, Erzsi, who found food and safe houses for them. More than half a million Hungarian Jews perished between 1941 and 1945 as part of the Nazis’ Final Solution.

Ozsváth recorded her experience in a memoir titled When the Danube Ran Red, which was released last year. She will discuss the events documented in the book and be available to sign copies.

Ozsváth is the Leah and Paul Lewis Chair of Holocaust Studies and professor of literature and history of ideas at the University of Texas at Dallas. She has written extensively about Holocaust literature and the Holocaust in Hungary. She holds music degrees (piano) from Bartók Béla School of Musical Arts and the State Academy of Music at Hamburg. She completed her Ph.D. in German language and literature at the University of Texas.

Come at 9:45 a.m. for coffee and conversation, and join us for a reception to follow the presentation. Everyone is welcome!
