Fairfield University commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day Tuesday with a special day for a survivor.
The university honored Emil A. Fish, who was only nine-years-old when he was captured with his family by the Gestapo. Fish, his mother, and sister were sent to Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp. His father was put in a separate concentration camp, and survived.
"I realize what I am,” said Fish. and I'm going to be very careful with what I say, no religious person has the answer to the question why did it happen, and the question is, where was God?"
Fish, his mother, and sister were liberated from Bergen-Belsen by the British army in 1945.
