Born into privilege in Hungary, Hermann Gruenwald's idyllic childhood came to an end in 1944 when he and his family were sent to Auschwitz. During his incarceration, Gruenwald's instinct for survival helped him live through three concentration camps. In "After Auschwitz" he recounts his story not only as a witness to history but as a human actor determined to make his way in whatever situation he finds himself. This event is being held in conjunction with the Global Conference on the Prevention of Genocide (Oct. 11-13).
