Joseph Alexander

Joseph Alexander, who survived 12 concentration camps during the Holocaust, will speak about his experiences at a rare event in Culver City on Feb. 15. 

Born in Poland in 1922, Alexander is one of the few remaining survivors of the Holocaust, and one of the world’s leading voices raising awareness of the atrocities that began in 1939 in German-occupied Europe, says a press release from Chabad of Culver City. 

Alexander survived the Warsaw Ghetto and spent six years in concentration camps including those of Dachau and Auschwitz-Birkenau, says the press release. 

Alexander will speak at The Shay Hotel 8801 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232.

Alexander’s story is “a miraculous story of survival and triumph,” says the press release. 

“Listen to his harrowing tale and be captivated by his enduring faith and spirit that have outlived the evils of history,” said Rabbi Levi Begun of Chabad of Culver City. “With the dwindling number of survivors, this is a rare and historic opportunity to absorb a fading generation’s message and story.”

Begun added, “Let us unite to send a clear message against hate and intolerance.” 

Alexander, 101, has been sharing his story with countless audiences of all ages all over the world. 

Alexander recently said in an interview “The motivation is to let the people know what happened, because I’m asked to speak for six million Jews who can’t talk.” 

The Feb. 15 event at The Shay Hotel begins at 7:30 pm. 

Attendance is $18, and registration is required. To register for the event or make a donation, visit Chabad of Culver City’s website at JewishCulverCity.com/survival.
