Survivor Speaker: Dr. Steven Fenves
Thursday, October 1, 2020, 3:00 p.m. EDT
Dr. Steven Fenves was 9 years old in 1941 when the Nazis invaded his home country of Yugoslavia. For the next 3 years, his family home was overtaken by Hungarian soldiers; at 12 years old, he was forced into a ghetto, and then survived Auschwitz, a death march, and Buchenwald before he was liberated. He lost both of his parents by age 14. Along with his older sister, he left Yugoslavia as it fell under communism.
Steven went on to immigrate to the United States, serve in the United States Army, earn his doctorate, and have a 42-year academic career in computing. This career path eventually led him to Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University. While in Pittsburgh, he was part of the founding of the city’s Holocaust Survivors Organization, serving as president for several years. Steven retired in 2009 and now lives in Rockville, Maryland, where he volunteers with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
During this talk, Steven will talk in greater detail about all of these experiences. Don’t miss this virtual survivor talk with one of the founding members of the Holocaust Center as we continue to celebrate our 40-year anniversary.
