Martin Lowenberg was born in Schenklengsfeld, Germany in 1928 -- five years before Adolf Hitler came to power. And that day, Jan. 30, 1933, forever changed Lowenberg's life. Nazis marched along the streets of Lowenberg's hometown to celebrate Hitler's appointment as Chancellor of Germany and burnt down his family's home. Martin Lowenberg spent his teenage years living in five different concentration camps after his parents and twin brothers were killed. Lowenberg is a regular speaker at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills. According to Collyer Smith, former Rotary Club president, "Martin shares his personal Holocaust story not with fear and hate, but rather through inspiration and hope. "
