Alex Star, a first generation survivor, and his nephew, Tibor Klopfer, a second generation survivor, put a human face on events and statistics of WW II by recounting experiences of their Hungarian Jewish family. Alex was a young teen when war broke out and for a while hid out in the countryside until he was captured and sent to labor camps. In July of 1944, Tibor’s mother (Alex’s older sister), was deported from a rural ghetto in Hungary to Auschwitz-Birkenau. She was liberated at the end of the war from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Tibor’s father lost all of his immediate family including his first wife and two daughters. He spent much of the war in Hungarian and German forced labor camps before being liberated from Dachau at the end of the war. Our speakers come to us through the Bureau of Jewish Education in Indianapolis.

The Columbus Area Arts Council’s annual report to the community will be held Tuesday, April 22 at YES Cinema. Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 4:30 PM and the program will begin promptly at 5:00 PM. Don Steffy, a well-known leader in the Indianapolis arts community and founder of the Pike Performing Arts Center, will deliver the keynote speech, “The Arts, are they a “matter” of opinion? Creating STEAM for STEM Education.” YES Cinema is located at 328 Jackson Street in the heart of the Columbus Arts District.
Mr. Steffy’s talk will focus on adding arts education to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) education to create STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math). STEAM is a movement initially championed by the Rhode Island School of Art and Design (RISD) that is nowwidely adopted by other educational institutions, corporations, and individuals. The goal of adding Arts education to the traditional STEM model is to foster true innovation that comes from combining the mind of a scientist with that of a designer.
The public is invited to attend the annual report to the community. For additional information, please visit www.artsincolumbus.org.
The Columbus Area Arts Council is a public, not-for-profit corporation supported by private donations, the City of Columbus, the State of Indiana through the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
