Chapel Schedule... All are invited to the 10 a.m. worship services in Christ Chapel. The upcoming schedule is as follows:
Wallenberg Lecture Monday... The Peace Studies program will present the annual Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Lecture at 7 p.m. Oct. 14 in Alumni Hall. Lucille Eichengreen, Holocaust survivor, will speak about her experiences, memories, and research of the Holocaust. Eichengreen, born Cecilia Landau, was 8 years old when Hitler came to power in 1933. In Nazi Germany and Poland, she witnessed and experienced Jewish persecution. During the Holocaust, she lost her father, mother, and sister. She was deported to a ghetto and later held in the concentration camps of Auschwitz, Neuengamme, and Bergen-Belsen. Liberated by the British Army on April 15, 1945, Eichengreen worked as an interpreter for the War Crimes Division of the British Army and was instrumental in the arrest and conviction of several camp guards. Her life was being threatened, so she moved to the U.S. and did not return to Germany and Poland until 1991. A retired insurance agent, Eichengreen now resides in California, where she is involved in the Holocaust Center of San Francisco and frequently gives public lectures. Eichengreen is author of the memoir From Ashes to Life: My Memories of the Holocaust (1994) and Rumkowski and the Orphans of Lodz (2000). The annual lecture was instituted to honor the legacy of Wallenberg, a Swede who managed to save the lives of thousands of Hungarian Jews during the Holocaust. This lecture is free and open to the public.
Dinner, Lecture, and Play Oct. 26... All are invited to a dinner, accompanied by a lecture by Rob Gardner (theatre and dance), at 6:15 p.m. Oct. 26 in the Interpretive Center.

Holocaust Film Showing
Oct. 31... Frank Beyer, the
only East German filmmaker to be nominated for an Oscar, will present his
Holocaust film Jacob the Liar at 7 p.m. Oct. 31 in Alumni Hall.
The film, produced in 1974, stars the late Czech actor Vlastomil Brodsky
as the anti-hero who tells a useful lie to give hope to Warsaw ghetto survivors
in the waning days of World War II. Beyer's unpretentious humanistic tone
and anti-bureaucratic stance brought him into constant confrontation with
his East German colleagues. He began working in West Germany after one
of the 30 films he had produced in his career was banned by East German
authorities in 1978. The screening will be followed by a reception
and discussion with Beyer in Linner Lounge. Beyer's visit is made possible
