"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)
Our Museum to the Rescue
Our Museum came to the rescue yesterday, Wednesday October 16th. 130 students from Lancaster Catholic High School were supposed to go to the Holocaust museum in Washington DC but because of the government being shutdown, were not able to go. We stepped in. Thanks to Ruth Hartz and Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel, Ernie Gross and Don Greenbaum spoke to them. The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote a fantastic article about the program. Pictures to come soon!
Also, a big thank you to Randi Boyette and the Anti-Defamation League for putting the school in touch with us. Without her these students would not have been able to see the speakers.
