In 2010, Holocaust survivor Jimmy Lichtman and liberator and ‘Berg alumnus Don Behm, class of ’51, came face to face on the Heidelberg campus to share their harrowing yet inspiring stories. After that, the university created the Lichtman-Behm Genocide Lecture Series in their honor and to create an important awareness around the theme of “never again.”
