Holocaust Tour

MENASHA, Wis. (AP) -- Over time, it began to dawn on Henry Golde that he might be one of the last Holocaust survivors in Wisconsin. So the Town of Menasha man is launching a tour of schools across the state to share his personal story with younger generations.

The 77-year-old Golde says he believes another Holocaust can happen again. He hopes future generations will remember the death camps as a warning of what happens when national ambitions are fueled by hate.

He published his memoirs in 2004. But he says he's spurred by the memory of Fela Warschau, a Sheboygan woman who died in September. As a young girl the Polish native lost most of her relatives to the gas chambers at the Auschwitz.

Jerald Podair is a history professor at Appleton's Lawrence University. He appreciates Golde's efforts -- but says he's worried that as time and eyewitnesses pass on, it will be harder to tell the story.
