Angela “Angi” Orosz-Richt of Montreal will talk about her story of survival on Tuesday, April 18, at Rockland Community College’s faculty staff dining room in the Cultural Arts Center, at 12:15 p.m.
Ms. Orosz-Richt was born in Auschwitz and was one of the few babies born there to have survived. During her pregnancy, Angi’s mother was subjected to experimentation by the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele. She was born at 2.5 pounds and didn’t walk until she was seven years old. Her testimony led to the convictions of two former Nazi SS guards in 2015.
Last summer, Ms. Orosz-Richt joined a group of college students from Rockland County who traveled to Poland with Hillel of Rockland to explore Holocaust history. For more information, call Rabbi Dov Oliver, director of Hillel of Rockland, at (845) 659-2388.
