The Department of History and Social Studies at Grace College, Winona Lake, Indiana, is co-sponsoring an event that will highlight the testimonies of two Holocaust survivors, Bill and Josephine Meyers. Bill lived next door to Corrie Ten Boom (pictured) and ran errands for her family.
He was captured at the age of 11 and sent to a death camp, where he escaped. If her health permits, Josephine will share her story of being raised by Gypsies in a Nazi-controlled village that was freed by American troops.
Bill has been interviewed by director/producer Steven Spielberg and Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family. Bell Memorial Public Library in Mentone, Indiana, is the main sponsor and the event is funded by the Indiana Humanities Council.
The program, which is open to the public, will take place on Saturday, September 15, at 4 p.m. at the United Methodist Church in Mentone, Indiana, 116 E. Main St. For more information contact Dr. Mark Norris in the history department of Grace College.
