Marion Blumenthal Lazan, the subject of a PBS documentary, “Marion’s Triumph,” spoke Monday, Nov. 18, in Corley Auditorium in Webster Hall on the campus of Missouri Southern State University.

Hundreds of students, faculty and staff members and local residents were on hand as Lazan delivered a reflection upon her experiences as a survivor and its relevance for our lives in contemporary society. She also signed copies of her book,  “Four Perfect Pebbles:  A Holocaust Story — a Message of Perseverance, Determination, Faith and Hope.”

The event was co-sponsored by the MSSU Social Sciences Department and the Institute of International Studies.
