Holocaust Living History Workshop featuring Bob Gans

Geisel Library, Unoiversity of California San Diego, San Diego

Social Justice and Human Rights

What does it take to survive persecution and exile? The story of Greta Taussig and Rudy Gans offers answers to this tantalizing question. Born in Linz, Austria, Greta emigrated to London after the country’s incorporation into the Third Reich, eventually enduring the horrors of the Blitz. Rudy was able to make his way to Shanghai after imprisonment in the notorious Dachau concentration camp. Along their arduous journey, each experienced the life-saving kindness of courageous strangers. At this special talk, their son Bob shares their thought-provoking story, supplemented by a display of artifacts and original documents. Prior to his retirement. Bob (J.D., UCLA) was General Counsel of a publicly traded company doing business in the US and overseas. A passionate believer in the lessons of the Holocaust, he is Co-Chair of Welcome Home, an organization dedicated to assisting refugees legally residing in San Diego.
