Via Jonathan Lin/Jersey Journal — She spent three years at a Nazi concentration camp and will speak today during Bayonne’s annual Holocaust memorial service in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
The event, which will take place at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall at 630 Ave. C, is sponsored by the United Jewish Appeal Federation of Bayonne and the Bayonne Interfaith Clergy.
Auerbacher, the last Jewish child born in Kippenheim, Germany, spent three years between ages 7 and 10 in the Terezin concentration camp in Czechoslovakia, city spokesman Joe Ryan said in a press release.
“Out of 15,000 children at that camp, only one percent survived, and Inge was one of them. Amazingly, her parents also survived. They emigrated to the United States in 1946,” Ryan said.
