A Holocaust commemoration service takes place next week at the Kansas State Historical Society museum in Topeka.
Monday’s event will include a talk by Holocaust survivor Eva Unterman, of Tulsa, Okla., who was 12 years old when World War II ended. She was a young child when her family was moved to Poland’s Lodz Ghetto and later to the Nazis’ Auschwitz concentration camp.
Republican state Rep. Lana Gordon of Topeka is 1 of the organizers of Monday’s commemoration. Gordon says the presentation will give a firsthand account of the Holocaust and the effect on world history of Nazi Germany’s killing of millions of Jews.
The commemoration service is open to the public
