An Interview with Sam Harris, Survivor of the Holocaust
November 3, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Presented by Kim Duchossois, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, and Northern Trust
Mr. Sam Harris, one of the youngest recorded survivors of the concentration camps during the Holocaust, will sit down with Barrington resident and Courageous Conversations leader Jessica Green for an intimately personal interview that is sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Mr. Harris will discuss his book, Sammy, Child Survivor of the Holocaust.
Mr. Harris describes his book as “the true story of my childhood and the experiences I survived. When I, as a Holocaust survivor, tell of what happened, the brutality is always obvious. It is true that the most horrendous and cruel crimes were perpetrated on the Jewish people and others during the war, but I want to remind everyone that not all Germans or Polish, or Ukrainians were bad people. There are, and always have been, many people in every nation who are good. We should always strive to find the good in everyone, to find ways to love and not to gate. That is the message of my story.”
