Event Description:
Katie Preston is a Holocaust survivor, motivational speaker, author, and activist for tolerance and anti-bullying. As the daughter of a Jewish father, she faced deportation when the war came to Hungary in 1944, but was saved by a humble Christian peasant woman who risked her life to hide Kati in her barn. Still, 28 members of Kati's Jewish family perished in Auschwitz.
 
Following her survival amidst the death of so many, Kati pursued meaningful careers in journalism, international fashion, and emergency medicine, but ultimately realized that what matters most is sharing her story of survival to educate others about the consequences of hate and prejudice.
 
Kati has spoken at over 75 venues and was recently honored with the Susan J. Herman award for leadership in Holocaust and Genocide Awareness. She is also the recipient of the UNH Age of Champions Inspirational Award. New Hampshire's Governor Sununu recently signed into law a bill sponsored by Kati, mandating genocide and Holocaust Studies in New Hampshire schools. Kati is currently working with the Cohen Center in Keene State College on a comprehensive curriculum addressing the consequences of hate and prejudice.
 
Amidst the global rise of hate, racism, and antisemitism, Kati believes her story is more relevant now than ever. Please join us in this once-in-a-lifetime event to hear Kati's story.
