It's a rare opportunity to learn a lesson in history from a firsthand witness. Holocaust survivor Eva Schloss will be in La Crosse next week to speak at four events.
Schloss, who became step-sister to Anne Frank in the 1950s, will return to speak at the Viterbo Fine Arts Center at 7 p.m. on Monday, September 18. She previously spoke at Viterbo on March 26, 2015 to a sold-out crowd. Tickets for this event are on sale now at the Viterbo Box Office for $15 or $10 for balcony seating.
Additionally, Schloss will attend three performances of the play based on her experience, "And Then They Came for Me," presented by La Crosse Community Theatre. After viewing the performances, Schloss will take part in a Q&A session following all three shows. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17, Tuesday, Sept. 19 and Wednesday, Sept. 20. Tickets are $28.
Since 1985 Eva has devoted herself to Holocaust education and global peace. She speaks all over the world and has also written three books.
