FORT SILL–Rudy Baum is one of a dwindling number of witnesses to man’s greatest inhumanity towards his fellow man. Rudy Baum is a Holocaust survivor.

The 92-year-old Baum was at Fort Sill Thursday as the keynote speaker at the Days of Remembrance Lunch. The last time Baum was at Fort Sill was 66 years ago when he was sent to Fort Sill as part of his induction into the U.S. Army.

Baum fled Germany in the mid-1930’s following an increase in the persecution of Jews by the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler.
