Holocaust Survivor To Speak At TTU

Lore Segal, author of Other People’s Houses about the journey of a Jewish refugee child from Vienna by way of England and the Dominican Republic to New York, will speak at a student-organized symposium on Monday on the campus of Tennessee Tech. Segal is being hosted by a group of Tennessee Tech University students of this semester’s foreign languages and cultural studies course on immigration and exile. Segal is a Holocaust survivor who left Vienna as a 10 year old and came to England on the Kindertransport. She will speak at an event scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m. Monday about her life as a refugee and a writer. The event will be held in the Johnson Hall auditorium.
