Stephen Nasser

Stephen Nasser (1931- ) is a Holocaust survivor, author, and speaker. Born in 1931, he and his family were forced into a ghetto in 1943. They were transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau shortly after, where Nasser witnessed the murder of several relatives. He was liberated from a death train on April 30, 1945 by General Patton’s Third Army.

Nasser published My Brother’s Voice in 2003, a book based on the diary he kept while in Nazi concentration camps. Nasser currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada and visits schools, churches, and organizations of all types to share his story. The City of Las Vegas proclaimed August 8, 2008 as Stephen Nasser day; also in 2008, he received a Humanitarian Award from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
