Frank Misa Grunwald as a young child

Around a year ago, I blogged about Frank Misa Grunwald, who is a regular on the lecture circuit, telling young students about his story of surviving several death camps and the gas chamber.

Frank Grunwald is still out on the lecture circuit educating young students about the Holocaust.  You can read about him in the news here.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

A presentation, “Escaping the Auschwitz Gas Chamber,” with special guest survivor Frank Misa Grunwald, will take place at CANDLES at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Frank Grunwald was 6-years-old when German troops invaded Czechoslovakia in March 1939. In the summer of 1942, he and his family were deported to the Terezin ghetto and in December 1943 to Auschwitz. At the last minute, he was pulled from the line leading to the gas chamber and placed with older children to work sorting the clothes of new arrivals. He survived a death march and four other concentration camps before U.S. soldiers liberated him in May 1945.


Frank’s story was documented in the award-winning 2012 film. Misa’s Fugue.
