Law and Order After the Holocaust
The Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center of Nassau County (HMTC) presents Law and Order after the Holocaust, a special event with Holocaust Survivor George Oscar Lee, on Sunday, November 13, 2016, at 2 p.m. at HMTC, Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road, Glen Cove, NY 11542.
Mr. Lee took up residence in the Föhrenwald Displaced Persons (DP) camp in Germany shortly after liberation. On his second day in the camp, he saw smoke coming from one of the survivors’ apartments. Mr. Lee ran in and extinguished the flames. Realizing that the camp lacked a fire brigade, he took it up on himself to create one. He was also disappointed with the ragtag residents who called themselves police and transformed them into a well-trained, professional police force. Mr. Lee will share some of his experiences and be available for Q&A.
Another speaker will be journalist and documentary filmmaker John Friedman, producer of the Academy Award-winning documentary, Hôtel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie. Mr. Friedman is currently documenting Mr. Lee’s life.
