RUTH Remember Us The Holocaust

Meet Lou Pechi, a Holocaust survivor that was hidden by his Catholic Uncle and Jewish aunt.  He lived in the home with their children, Hanzi and Greta, and they treated him like their own. He was baptized Catholic, and this saved him until someone turned him in. He was sent to prison and was there for two days, six hours before the train would have deported him to Auschwitz. His book is I am Lubo. Moderated by curator Sandra Scheller.
