Gwynedd-Mercy College Presents a Holocaust Story

As Told By Survivor David Tuck

GWYNEDD VALLEY, PA (03/11/2008)(readMedia)-- Gwynedd-Mercy College invites the community to attend a moving lecture by Mr. David Tuck, a Holocaust survivor, on Wednesday, March 19, 2008 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in Merck Auditorium, located in Keiss Hall on the College’s campus. The event is free of charge.

Tuck was a teenager living in Poland during World War II when he was forced into a labor camp and, later, a death camp. He was ordered, at gunpoint, to pull gold fillings from the mouths of the dead. Tuck is determined to tell his story wherever and whenever possible, so that younger generations will understand the gravity of his and so many others’ experiences.
