Holocaust Survivor to Speak at Arts & Lectures Event

The fifth Arts & Lectures event of the semester features Rose Schindler, one of the few survivors still able to speak about living through the Holocaust.

The event is at 6 p.m. on April 11 in the USU Ballroom. The event is free for Cal State San Marcos students. Faculty, staff, alumni and community members can purchase tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.

Schindler was only 14 years old when she was deported to Auschwitz along with her parents, aunt, five sisters and two brothers. Her new memoir, “Two Who Survived,” chronicles her experiences in the Holocaust and her life afterward, including falling in love with another survivor and moving to San Diego. Her signed memoir will be given to 50 audience members on a first-come, first-served basis so her story can live on.   

CSUSM’s Arts & Lectures series offers a diverse lineup of artistic, cultural and scholarly events every semester based on input and proposals from students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Events are scheduled to take place largely in person this spring, subject to change based on developments related to COVID-19. Attendees can reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website
