CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A Holocaust survivor will visit Southeast Missouri State University this week.
The Cape Girardeau school says Rachel Miller will speak Wednesday as part of the school's observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
During the Holocaust, the French-born Miller was sent to the country to live with a Catholic family. Many of her relatives didn't survive.
Political science professor Mitchel Gerber says it's important to remember the atrocities that occurred during the Holocaust. He noted that since the war ended, genocide has occurred in locations such as Rwanda, Sudan and Cambodia.
The event is free and open to the public.
