Tuesday night, we had the honor of hosting Holocaust survivor and Aggie Grandfather, Max Galuben. The 88-year-old survivor shared his story and spoke out against genocide to a standing room only crowd in the Memorial Student Center. Glauben has endured many horrors including the Warsaw Ghetto, the Maidanek, Budzyn, Mielec, Wieliczka, and Flossenburg Concentration Camps, and the “Death March to Dachau”.
