Holocaust survivor Herbert Heller shared his story of incarceration at Auschwitz with parishioners June 21 in the parish hall. “Heller, now 88, shared his story of transformation from a worry-free child in a Jewish family in Prague, Czechoslovakia to a survivor of the notorious Auschwitz death camp in Poland,” Father Mike Quinn, pastor, told Catholic San Francisco. “Mr. Heller offered us unique insights into a tragedy of human history that we as Christians should be alert to never allowing to occur again,” Heller escaped the camp in 1944 and found his way to the Bay Area where he became a U.S. citizen.
