Dr. John Saunders, believed to be the only living Tufts alumnus to have survived Hitler's death camps, will speak to students and community members in honor of Kristellnacht. Saunders, a native of Poland, will recount his struggle to survive genocide and persecution while imprisoned at Auschwitz, Birkenau, Mauthausen, and Gusen I concentration camps. His extraordinary story includes accounts of escape, recapture, and a face-to-face encounter with Auschwitz's "Angel of Death," Dr. Joseph Mengele.
