Jack Sittsamer - Holocaust Survivor

April 6 2021

A survivor of six different Nazi concentration camps during the Holocaust, and the sole survivor of his family of seven, Jack Sittsamer (1924-2008) shared his story with more than 100,000 people in classrooms and auditoriums across the country. His legacy of Holocaust education touches countless lives, and his passing was the inspiration for the creation of LIGHT.

"I'm going to die soon, and when I do it's up to you to tell my story."
