Athens, Ga. - Holocaust survivor George Dynin will give a talk at the University of Georgia about his recently published memoir, "Aryan Papers," on April 14 at 5 p.m. in Room 214 of the Miller Learning Center.

His discussion, titled "A Young Man's Victory over the Third Reich," is free and open to the public. The event will include a reading from "Aryan Papers," which details how Dynin, along with his mother and sister, were able to avoid being sent to the Nazi death camps by acquiring false documents and posing as Polish Christians.

After World War II, Dynin studied economics at Tel Aviv University and served in the Israeli Army. He moved to the U.S. in 1958 and has lived in Athens for the past 15 years.

Dynin's talk is sponsored by the department of Germanic and Slavic studies in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. For more information, call 706-542-3663.
