Holocaust Survivor to Speak at ACC

The Alvin Community College Study Abroad Program will host Holocaust survivor and author Lilian Gordon on February 16 to speak about her experiences.

Gordon, a Russian Jew, was born while her family fled Nazi-occupied Ukraine. She spent the rest of World War II living in a work camp in Siberia.

“We are very excited to host Mrs. Gordon for this special evening,” Student Activities coordinator Amanda Smithson said. “Her experience during and after the war will provide participants with a first-hand recount of the horrors of the holocaust outside of Germany.”

Gordon’s visit to ACC coincides with the ACC Study Abroad Program, a yearly opportunity for students to travel to foreign destinations as part of their educational experience. This year, the Study Abroad Program will explore Eastern Europe with a nine-day trip to Prague, Badupest, Krakow, Auschwitz and Vienna.

The February 16 event is free and open to the public. Coffee and desserts will be sold at the event. Proceeds will benefit the Study Abroad students.
