A UVic scholar, Charlotte illuminates one of the World War II’s unrecognized heroes, Carl Lutz, who saved an estimated 60,000 (minimum) people from the Holocaust.
Charlotte Schallié, Professor of Germanic studies at the University of Victoria and a member of the university’s Holocaust Studies Program, said it’s only in the past few years that Lutz’s story and the enormity of his humanitarian achievement have been recognized.
This event is organized by the Victoria Swiss Society. The Swiss Consul General will be attending. Refreshments will be served following talk. RSVP: Daniel von Kanel 250-727-7950 email@example.com.
