Holocaust survivor Irving Roth to speak at the Library

On Thursday, February 6, the Regent University chapter of CUFI (Christians United for Israel) and the Library will host Holocaust survivor Irving Roth. Mr. Roth was deported to Auschwitz 1944. There he endured starvation and slavery, with the daily fear of being “selected” for death as being too weak to work. In January 1945, he survived the death march to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he remained imprisoned until the camp’s liberation by the U.S. Army that April.

Now 90 years old, Mr. Roth devotes much of his time to speaking with young people and college students in the hopes that they will resolve that the history of Nazism will never be repeated.
The event will begin at 5:45 p.m. with fellowship and a light snack. The lecture will begin at 6:00.
