Holocaust survivor to speak to Elon community on Nov. 15

Holocaust survivor and Elon grandparent Mark Schonwetter and Elon parent Ann Arnold share their family's story of surviving the Holocaust

Holocaust survivor Mark Schonwetter GP’23 and his daughter Ann Arnold P’23 are excited to share his story of survival with the Elon community on Tuesday, Nov. 15 in Turner Theater at 5:30 p.m.  Mark and Ann are the proud grandparent and parent of Lexi Arnold ’23, a senior at Elon.

“To be able to share this story with Elon students is so special to us and so vitally important. This is the last generation to have the opportunity to hear a first-hand account of the Holocaust from a living survivor,” shares Ann Arnold.

Join us as they share Mark’s story of survival and their journey to create a Foundation which helps inspire students through expanding and supporting Holocaust Education.

Due to limited seating, RSVP is required. Ann Arnold’s book about her father’s experience, Together: A Journey for Survival, will be available for purchase after the event.
