Since 2005, Oskar has been speaking to schools and community organizations about his experiences surviving the Holocaust, lessons learned and how the kindness of Upstanders kept him alive. He has spoken to over 500,000 at a combined 500+ elementary schools, junior highs schools, high schools, college campuses, corporations and religious organizations. Even more impressive, when added up, Oskar has given more than 1,500 presentations and is still going strong in 2019 at 93 years old.
His mission is simple, educate people about the Holocaust so we Never Forget and promote being an upstander to yourself and others so a Holocaust Never Happens Again.
Teachers and Community Leaders
For 15 years Oskar has provided a 90 minute presentation to students and the community highlighting his experiences through the Holocaust, the life lessons he has learned and implemented in his own life and how to be an Upstander for yourself and others.
He is now providing a video of his presentation for all to watch which can be found below. After viewing the video in whole or in increments with your group, Oskar would be honored to visit for a question & answer session!
The video and question & answer sessions are FREE. Any donations will be given to help fund the Phoenix Holocaust Center.
