Holocaust survivor to speak Thursday
Between the ages of 7 to 13, Garwolinski was shot, beaten, tortured, imprisoned in concentration camps and strapped to a gurney where he was subjected to gruesome medical experiments. His family was torn apart. He was sent to one concentration camp, his father to another and his mother and brother to still another. The fact that he survived is a testament to his faith in God and his will to live. But, the price Garwolinski paid for his survival and the violence he inflicted on others still lives with him today.
