Alan Stock Interviews Stephen Nasser

When he was 12 years old, Nazis tore Stephen Nasser and his family from their home in Hungry and transported them to Auschwitz.  He is the one who survived the ordeal. He was brought to Canada by the Canadian Jewish Congress in 1948, and in 1958 he immigrated to the USA.

Nasser currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada with his wife Françoise, a retired nurse. He remains as dynamic and creative as ever. Both he and his wife enjoy playing tennis, skiing, snorkeling, hiking, theater, and playing bridge. He built a HO gauge model train layout that took over 600 hours to complete. An avid artist, Nasser paints in oils and watercolors. He has children, grand-, and great-grandchildren.

He speaks to classes, church groups and organizations about his experiences. In 2008 Stephen Nasser was invited to the FBI’s main headquarters in Las Vegas, where they presented him with a Humanitarian Award. The City of Las Vegas proclaimed August 8, 2008 as Stephen Nasser day in recognition of his surviving the Holocaust and sharing his story with the citizens of Las Vegas.
