Emmaly Reed, survivor of a Nazi concentration camp, will speak at 7 p.m. April 3 at St. Nicholas of Myra Parish. This is open to the public. Admission is free, but a freewill offering will be taken for Reed.
Reed, 77, lives in Salina. She was 3 years old when she was separated from her Jewish mother, father and older brothers and sent to the Dachu concentration camp.
"I talk to people so they will know the truth," she said.
When entering the camp, she received with a number 4 on one arm and a Star of David on the other. Those tattoos indicated she was the fourth person to enter the camp and a Jew.
She will speak of some of the tortures she and other endured -- rape, starvation, beatings and "medical experiments" performed on the inmates, particularly those of Jewish ancestry. Much of her time will be in question and answer format.
