‘Lioness of Judah’ tells kids of Holocaust’s horrors

Sara Hauptman, a Holocaust survivor who lived in the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Dachau, will be discussing her experiences in the classrooms of various Colorado Springs schools all week.


Sara Hauptman is a most unusual author, on a most unusual book tour. Hauptman is three months shy of her 88th birthday, and she has been addressing audiences in Colorado Springs this week from a wheelchair, with an oxygen tube under her nose because of the high altitude.

When she tires or her Belgianaccented voice fades, co-author and “adopted daughterâ€? Sue Oliver takes up her story.
