Sami Steigmann – Holocaust survivor, motivational speaker
About this webinar: The United Nations General Assembly has designated January 27th — the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau — as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On the eve of that somber anniversary, we were profoundly honored to have a courageous Holocaust survivor, Sami Steigmann, who will speak about his experience and the critically important lessons that he learned, not only for the Jewish people, but for all of humanity. As a child, Sami survived the very depths of despair that man is capable of inflicting upon his fellow man, and are, thank God, is still surviving to tell his story of courage, of optimism, of hope, and of love for his fellow human being. Learn more about Sami’s work and how to support his Foundation here.
Sami Steigmann is a Holocaust Survivor who lives to tell his story. Through speaking at schools, organizations, media outlets, and more, he is passionate about his role of sharing a fresh perspective on hope, life, and faith. Sami is dedicated to reach as many young people as he can, nationally and internationally, promote tolerance, and, hopefully, they will make it a better world for themselves, their children and their grandchildren. His advice to the young people: “NEVER GIVE UP. NEVER LOSE HOPE and enjoy the life you’ve been given. NEVER BE A PERPETRATOR (anyone that hurts another, intentionally and repeatedly, is a perpetrator). But most importantly, NEVER, EVER BE A BYSTANDER. The greatest tragedy in human history, the Holocaust and all the genocides, happened because the world stood by and did nothing. As a bystander, you are part of the problem. He wants you to “BE PART OF THE SOLUTION.”
