The Story of Dr. Eva Olsson
Eva Olsson was born on Oct., 28 in Szatmar, Hungary (now Satu Mare, Romania). On May 15, 1944, she and her family were taken away to Auschwitz-Birkenau, part of what is now known as the Holocaust.
Eva’s autobiography, “Unlocking the Doors: A Woman’s Struggle Against Intolerance”, published in 2001, describes her life before, during, and after these events. Eva has spoken to over a million people in schools, service clubs, churches, on armed forces bases, at police conferences, and at conferences at Queen’s Park and the United Nations.
Eva recently spoke to students and staff of Milverton and Central Perth schools. She has graciously allowed AMDSB Communications to record her presentation and share it with those interested.
