With an infectious smile that belies her Holocaust experience – and a youthful spirit that honors her survival of that hellish chapter – 89-year-old Esther Bauer addressed a Klump Academic Center Auditorium audience Tuesday night. Sponsored by the Student Activities Office, Bauer’s free lecture gave the public a rare opportunity to hear from a true eyewitness to history. A video of her Penn College presentation has been posted to YouTube.
