FORMER NEO-NAZI TO SPEAK AT PITT-BRADFORD

BRADFORD, Pa. – John Daly, subject of the documentary “Escape from Room 18,” will speak at 7 p.m. Dec. 7 in the Bromeley Family Theater at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

After a showing of the documentary, Daly will talk about his experience as an active member of a Neo-Nazi group despite the fact that he is Jewish.

When his followers discovered his identity, they beat him and tried to drown him in the Atlantic Ocean, leaving him for dead. Daly received help from The Jewish Agency, a nonprofit that helps Jews immigrate to Israel, where he would be safe from those who wanted him dead.

Years later, he received an email from a fellow ex-skinhead apparently on a mission to change his own life and make amends for his past. Kevin Connell invited Daly to meet him in Prague, and the two traveled to the remains of Nazi death camps to see firsthand the effects of what they had preached and practiced.

Their emotional journey is the subject of the documentary “Escape from Room 18.” The name comes from Room 18 at the Terezin death camp, which was the morgue.

Dr. Pat Brougham, assistant professor of criminal justice, spearheaded the effort to bring Daly to campus.

“Since we have recently had an upsurge in white supremacy events, I really wanted to do something this year focused on hate,” she said. “It is difficult to understand hate groups. My effort is focused on helping us as a community to understand how someone can subscribe to such hate.

“I heard John’s story and thought perhaps a Jewish ex-Neo-Nazi could help us understand how people make the decision to join such groups. I believe that if we, as a community, are going to overcome such hate, we must understand how and why it exists.”

Daly’s visit is being sponsored by the criminal justice program, Criminal Justice Club, the History and Political Science Club, the International Relations/Model UN Club and the Office of Academic Affairs.

most people join these groups just for the attention, the ONLY reason for this clown to join was the attention. Counterfeit S.O.B.s will be spewing his bullshit to college kids now... great. What the colleges really need is speakers that have had a positive agenda all their adult life, someone that KNEW what they wanted to do in life, not attention starved little liberals that wanted everyone to look at them all the time.

Who's going to help the Native Palestinian Christians & Muslims who're being systematically thrown off their lands and killed by those who're immigrating from SAFE countries and living in internationally recognized illegal settlements on stolen lands? Check out IfAmericansKnew.org
