Dedication: "To my friend, the late Sigmund Strolitz, a survivor of the Auschwitz death camp, who realized that the world was beginning to forget the Holocaust."
~ Dana Naumann
Sigmund Strochlitz (1916 - Oct. 16, 2006) was born in Bedzin, Poland. He survived several concentration camps, including Auschwitz, where his parents and sisters were killed. In 1978, Elie Wiesel recommended him to become a member of President Jimmy Carter's Commission on the Holocaust, and he and Wiesel worked together to create the National Holocaust Memorial Museum. In 1981, he and his wife Rose endowed the Chair and Institute in Holocaust Studies at Haifa University in Israel.
In 1986, Strochlitz was named the second recipient of the Elie Wiesel Remembrance Award, and he later was a member of the Board of Directors of the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity. In 2006, Mr. Wiesel attended his funeral in New London, CT. .
