Event description

Description

Presented by the UC San Diego Holocaust Living History Workshop

Please join the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program and UC San Diego Library for a lecture by Lou de Beer on Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 5-7 p.m. in the Seuss Room at Geisel Library. This event is free and open to the public.

The son of American parents, Lodewyk “Lou” de Beer was born in Amsterdam in 1931. He witnessed the arrival of the German troops in 1940 and lived through the dark days of occupation.

When the U.S. joined the war, the de Beers were declared enemy aliens and subjected to a lengthy odyssey through concentration and internment camps. On the periphery of WWII and the Holocaust, Lou caught glimpses of devastation and oppression without fully grasping their significance until he experienced the hardship of war firsthand during his service in Korea in the 1950s. His journey adds an important and generally overlooked angle to the history of WWII in Europe.
