THE LOU DUNST MEMORIAL LECTURE

On Wednesday, May 8, the Holocaust Living History Workshop series will feature Louis Pechi, a Holocaust survivor whose remarkable life journey covered three continents, four countries and seven cities before finding home in San Diego.

Born in the Croatian city of Zagreb, Louis “Lubo” Pechi was seven years old when the Germans invaded Yugoslavia. In response to the mounting anti-Semitic repression and strict laws prohibiting Jews from traveling, the Pechis converted to Catholicism and changed their identities in hope of finding safety in Italy. While the Pechi family managed to escape to Rome, a series of unexpected events followed, marking a lengthy journey of survival for Lubo. Decades later, he began the arduous process of recovering the memories of his hidden life by writing his memoir I Am Lubo: A Child Survivor from Yugoslavia.
