A speech by Anne Levy before the Baton Rouge Rotary Club on March 7, 2018. Levy, a native of Poland, is a Holocaust survivor. She discusses: living in the Warsaw ghetto; escaping the ghetto and living with a Catholic family; living in a hut at her father’s lumber yard; their escape into the countryside during the Allied bombings; their liberation by the Russians; her family walking from Poland to the American zone at the Czechoslovakian-German border; living in a small Bavarian town in the American zone for four years; her family’s emigration to New Orleans; the warm welcome they received; and her confrontation with David Duke during his time as a state legislator.
