From living in labor camps to immigrating to the U.S. as an orphan, one Holocaust survivor is still able to share his story and speak out against genocide.

Max Glauben is an 88-year-old survivor who now resides in Dallas. He spoke at Texas A&M on Tuesday to tell his story and discuss preventing future genocide.

After bouncing from camp to camp at a young age, Glauben says he was saved by American soldiers, moved to America and even fought in the Korean War.

He now teaches and speaks to groups about bettering the world and treating people equally.

Glauben has helped lead "March of the Living" trips 11 times. Jewish teenagers explore Holocaust remnants in Poland and Israel for two weeks.

He is also currently working to get the Holocaust Museum in Dallas renamed to be more inclusive.
