A pair of Holocaust survivors will tell their tale of survival and escape from a death camp during an event in Chandler on Jan. 11.

Survivors Thomas Blatt and Philip Bialowitz will recount their stories from the Nazi death camp Sobibor, where a group of Jewish prisoners overpowered the guards and freed 200 of the 600 slave laborers.

The event, called Take a Stand: Resistance & Survival, begins at 7 p.m. on Jan. 11 at the Chandler Center for the Arts, located at 250 N. Arizona Ave. Tickets for the event are $10 for the general public and $7 for veterans and active military members.
