Holocaust survivor speaks at UNC

Tibor Spitz
shared his
at Union
By Lorcan Farrell
Staff Writer

When he was 15 years

old, Tibor Spitz crawled out
of a hand-built shelter and
dug into the side of a hill in
Slovakia where he had spent
the previous seven months
hiding from the German
army. Seventy-three years
later, he walked into the
Student Union Auditorium
to help ensure that people do
not forget the horrors he and
other Jewish people endured
during the Holocaust.
Spitz is not only a
Holocaust survivor but also
an engineer, Ph.D. holder
and an artist. He used a
combination of anecdotes
and samples of his artwork
to tell his story to the gath-
ered audience. One of only
