One Table Café speaker survived concentration camps
PRINCETON » Sol Lurie breathes life into history Friday as guest speaker for Trinity Church’s One Table Café
Lurie, a Lithuanian Jew, survived six Nazi concentration camps from June 1941-April 1945.
His entry into the Nazi genocide war machinery occurred as an 11-year-old when he and family members were rounded up and sent to the Kovno ghetto in Lithuania.
Lurie, now 87 and residing in Monroe, endured 1,388 days imprisoned in concentration camps, including Germany’s infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau complex.
His torturous incarceration involved a death march to Buchenwald, the site of nearly 56,000 Jewish deaths.
Lurie, has noted that he “outlived Hitler.”
Trinity Church hosts One Table Café on the third Friday of each month as a Princeton-area restaurant provides a meal that features a “pay what you can” format.
