Alter Wiener’s personal version of 9/11 came 62 years early. On September 11, 1939, his father was brutally murdered by the German invaders of Poland. Alter was then a boy of 13. At the age of 15 he was deported to Blechhammer, a Forced Labor Camp for Jews, in Germany. He survived five camps. Upon liberation, by the Russian Army on May 9, 1945, Alter weighed just 80 lbs.
Since retiring and moving to Oregon in 2000, he’s shared his life story with more than 800 audiences in universities, colleges, middle and high schools, Churches, Synagogues, prisons, clubs and more. He’s also been interviewed by radio and TV stations as well as the press. His autobiography is a testimony to an unfolding tragedy taking place in WWII. It’s message tells what prejudice may lead to and how tolerance is imperative. Hopefully, by listening to this man’s story, it will enable the listener to truly understand such levels of horror and a chance to empathize with the unique plight of the Holocaust victims.
