Presenters for 25th Annual
Arkansas Education Holocaust Conference
Steen Metz was a young boy living in Denmark when the Nazis conquered Denmark in 1940. His family experienced three years of occupation until they were arrested and deported to the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp in Czechoslovakia in 1943. This camp was a work camp, not one of the infamous extermination facilities. However, it became a death camp for his father, an attorney, who died within six months of starvation and hard labor.
