Holocaust Survivor Eric Cahn to speak at LCCC

CHEYENNE, WYO. —  In October 1940, Eric Cahn and his family were ripped from the safety of their home by Nazis. His harrowing journey was just beginning.

Free and open to the entire community, Cahn will speak at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29, in LCCC’s Center for Conferences and Institutes, in the Union Pacific Centennial Room.

Cahn will discuss his experiences during that time, including what happened to his parents at Auschwitz, as well as how he managed to survive the ordeal.

On the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the dwindling number of survivors such as Cahn are speaking across the county to remind people of the horrors that took place during that war.

Cahn currently lives in Colorado, where he spends time volunteering for his community as well as speaking to groups about the Holocaust.

This event is presented by the LCCC History Department.
