BOWLING GREEN - A conference on the Holocaust starting today at Bowling Green State University will include a presentation by a concentration camp survivor who later reported on the Nuremberg war crime trials.
Ernest Michel, who worked for German news agency DANA following World War II, will discuss the trials, which occurred immediately after the war. They resulted in the conviction and death sentences of multiple Nazi war criminals working for a variety of German organizations during the war, including the German high command.
Mr. Michel also is vice president emeritus of the United Jewish Appeal Federation of New York.
The conference, which lasts through Sunday and is open to the public, also will include highlight research on lasting effects of the Holocaust on present-day society; artistic performances, and a film.
Mr. Michel's speech, at 12:15 p.m. in Room 207 in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, is the only presentation that requires an admission fee. Cost is $10.
