Visiting Holocaust Survivor Lecture April 2019 [Audio]

In February 1944, five-year-old Steven Hess, his parents and twin sister were sent to Bergen Belsen concentration camp and were among very few Jewish families to stay alive. Hess, a New York resident, educator and Holocaust survivor, recently spoke to an audience of community members and Ithaca College students about his personal story of survival at an event hosted by Ithaca College Hillel.
