Holocaust Survivors Share

holocaust survivors 09 Yesterday 25 students from PS 149 in Brooklyn trekked out to the JCC of Canarsie to listen to 4 survivors of concentration camps and Nazi occupation tell their histories. Their teacher, Sebastian Turner, had been teaching about genocide and WW II when he met Met Council staff at a recent event. From that meeting a plan was formed to give his students a first hand account of what they were learning in class. The survivors spoke honestly about their experiences, and urged the students to study hard and make the most of their lives, especially considering those in the Holocaust who never had the same opportunities.
