Larry Kosiek’s father, Sergeant Albert Kosiek, had an incredible role in liberating 40,000 prisoners from Mauthausen and another sub-camp. Join us as we learn more about these extraordinary stories of Holocaust survival. This program is funded by the Fitchburg Senior Center, the Fitchburg Public Library, and Beyond the Page (which brings humanities events to Dane County libraries).
