‘Hidden Child’ speaks about preserving the legacy at UT Martin


The University of Tennessee at Martin Honors Program and the Department of History and Philosophy are teaming up to sponsor Sonja Dubois, an academic speaker, at 7:30 p.m., April 9, in the Boling University Center’s Watkins Auditorium.

Dubois was less than 2 years old when she became a “hidden child.” Her parents were deported to a concentration camp and became victims of the Holocaust.

“Our families paid the price for the hatred and racism instigated by one man,” Dubois said. “Only by speaking against racism can we change the future.”

Dubois’ speech is titled “Preserving the Legacy.”
