About Norbert Friedman

Friedman was seventeen when the Germans invaded Poland in 1939. Born in Krakow, he and his parents moved around to avoid capture by the Nazis. In 1942, Friedman was sent to a labor camp and never saw his mother or younger brother again. He survived eleven concentration camps including Dachau. Friedman immigrated to the United States in 1950. An accomplished writer and raconteur, he is the author of the memoir, Sun Rays at Midnight, and a collection of short stories, Sappy Tales and Silent Screams

 

This event is co-sponsored by GT TechList and Hillel at Georgia Tech.
