Eva Schloss, stepsister and childhood friend of Anne Frank, will speak in Bakersfield on March 12.

Sponsored by the Chabad Jewish Community Center, Schloss' lecture at the Fox Theater will touch on her experience and relationship with Frank, whom she became friends with at 8 years old. 

Both of the girls' families were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp after first going into hiding. Schloss managed to survive, later making her way to England where she married and started a family of her own.

Schloss has dedicated her life to Holocaust education and global peace, writing two books and speaking at numerous engagements.

People of all faiths are welcome to attend the lecture, which will start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $28 for general admission and $16 for students. For $180, people can receive a VIP package, which includes priority seating, a private reception and cocktail party with Schloss before the lecture.
