Holocaust survivor Steen Metz will speak at The Laboratory Theater of Florida on Monday, April 2, at 7 p.m.

Metz will speak about his experiences within a concentration camp in the now Czech Republic. He is a speaker within the theater's expanding tolerance and cultural education programming.

His question-and-answer discussion coincide with Holocaust Remembrance Month in April.

Metz' family was arrested and deported to Theresienstadt Concentration Camp in Czechoslovakia in 1943. His father, Axel Metz, died within six months of starvation and hard labor. He and his mother were liberated from the camp in 1945.

A?former seasonal resident of Sanibel, Metz spends his senior years and retirement telling his story throughout the country. He accepts no pay or remuneration for his captivating talks and discussions except that he asks that each person that hears his story share with four more people so that the Holocaust may never be forgotten or denied.

There is no fee to listen to Metz but a $10 donation is suggested. Proceeds will be given to the Holocaust Museum and Education Center of Southwest Florida in Metz's honor.

Seating is available on a first come, first served basis, doors open 30 minutes prior to the event.
