JUDA - A man born on a train traveling to a Nazi concentration camp during World War II visited Juda High School Tuesday to talk about the Holocaust and the life of his mother. Dr. Mark Olsky, 71, was born on or near April 20, 1945 - the last birthday of Adolf Hitler. "That's what it says on my driver's license and my passport, so I'm sticking with it," Olsky told an audience of Juda middle- and high-schoolers.
