Fred Gross considers himself a lucky man.
Having grown up during the Holocaust, Gross is likely one of few Jewish people who can say he and his entire family escaped death.
Gross, who now lives in Louisville, spoke at Campbellsville High School on Monday and at the Taylor County Public Library on Tuesday afternoon.
Andrea Lawler, the library's new director, met Gross before her employment there and arranged for him to speak.
About 60 people came to the library to hear Gross speak and meet him afterward.
