Dr. Edith Eger: A Survivor Story
May 15, 2013
Jerilyn S. McIntyre Concert Hall
A Survivor's Story: A Holocaust survivor helping individuals discard their limitations and discover their powers of self-renewal.
Dr. Edith Eger, Holocaust survivor, will be at Central Washington University on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 to speak at the Jerilyn S. McIntyre Music Building Concert Hall at 7:30 p.m. Dr. Eger is a native of Hungary and was just a young teenager in 1944 when she experienced one of the worst evils the human race has ever known. As a Jew living in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe, she and her family were sent to Auschwitz, the death camp, where her parents lost their lives. Toward the end of the war, Edith and other prisoners had been moved to another camp in Austria. On May 4, 1945, a young American soldier noticed her hand moving slightly amongst a number of dead bodies. The soldier summoned medical help and brought her back from the brink of death.
Today, Dr. Eger is a prolific author and a member of several professional associations. She has a clinical practice in La Jolla, California and holds a faculty appointment at the University of California, San Diego.
