Holocaust Survivor Series At Emerald Cove

Dignitaries gather with Holocaust survivors.

On Friday, Dec. 8, students in the sixth through eighth grade participated in an event that is centered on the atrocities that occurred during World War II and the innocent slaughter of 11 million people. Three child survivors and two Holocaust survivors spoke to the students. Each of them shared a very personal and painful story, and they stressed the importance of getting the word out to people about what really happened. Emerald Cove students were actively engaged and came away with being able to say that they not only met a survivor, but now are more educated about the Holocaust than they were before the program.
