AP Euro Students Hear Personal Account of World War II Experience

AP Euro students had the honor of hearing from Mr. Franz, Mrs. Franz's father-in-law, who shared firsthand accounts of his experiences during and after World War II. Mr. Franz grew up in the former Yugoslavia as an ethnic German, but when WW2 began, his family became a target as ethnic Germans. Ignoring the advice of others to move back to Germany, the Franz family stayed in Yugoslavia. Mr. Franz, his mother and grandparents were sent to an extermination camp after their village was destroyed. They remained at the camp for 18 months.
