Holocaust survivor shares her story on ‘Conversations from Penn State’

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Inge Auerbacher was only 7 years old when she was imprisoned in a concentration camp in Czechoslovakia during the Holocaust. She was one of 15,000 children at that camp and one of the few who survived.

Auerbacher will recount her experiences and their lasting impact on the next "Conversations from Penn State." The episode will air at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 17 on WPSU-TV and also can be viewed at http://conversations.psu.edu online.

Auerbacher will discuss with WPSU host Patty Satalia how she beat the odds to survive and started a new life in America.

Auerbacher immigrated to the United States in 1946 and received her degree in chemistry from Queens College. She spent 38 years as a chemist in medical research and clinical work. She also is now the author of six books, published in nine languages.

"Conversations from Penn State," with Satalia at the helm, offers thoughtful, in-depth exchanges with a broad range of remarkable people. In many cases, their trailblazing work has advanced their field, drawing national and worldwide attention.
