Penn State York Presents Esther Bauer
7:00 p.m. | Penn State York Presents Esther Bauer

Esther Bauer was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1924. Her father, Dr. Alberto Jonas, was the principal of the Jewish Girls School, and her mother, Dr. Marie Anna Jonas, was a medical doctor. Esther Bauer, her mother, and her father were deported to the Theresienstadt ghetto in Czechoslovakia on July 19, 1942, where they were prisoners. Her father died six weeks later of meningitis. After two years there, she married because her then friend, not yet husband, got the order to be sent with many others to the city of Dresden to build a new ghetto. That was, of course, a lie. He and the other men wound up in Auschwitz. After the men had left, their spouses were told they could go voluntarily after their husbands. Esther went and they all landed in Auschwitz where her husband was murdered. Esther’s mother was deported to Auschwitz on October 10,1944, and was later murdered there. Esther survived. Esther was exuberant upon being liberated, and decided to “live each day, have fun and be a human being.”

Tickets are available at no charge through The Pullo Center Box Office. Penn State York students, faculty, and staff can pick-up tickets in the Student Affairs office or at The Pullo Center Box Office.
