Topeka A Holocaust commemoration service takes place this 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 one 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.
