Event description

Description

Steen Metz grew up in the town of Odense, Denmark, about 100 miles west of Copenhagen, and was the son of non-practicing Jewish parents. Jews made up on 0.2 percent of the country's population, and were well-integrated into Danish society at the time.

Then, on October 2, 1943, after more than three years of Nazi occupation in Denmark, Metz's family--8-year-old Steen and his parents--were arrested at their home, loaded into a crowded cattle car without food, water, light or a working toilet for three days, and sent to Terezin concentration Camp in what is today the czech Republic.

Meet Steen on April 3 to hear the rest of his incredible story.
