International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2016 Educating at Hillfield-Strathallan College

Two Hundred More Students Educated!!

This past week, two hundred high school students were educated at Hillfield-Strathallan College in Hamilton, Ontario. After the presentation, one 9th grade student wrote:

“I thoroughly enjoyed the documentary presentation and the short lecture on the Holocaust. The
documentary didn't just tell me statistics and facts; it took me deeper into the story, talking about real
life experiences of a couple, who were taken by the Nazis. It showed me the real-life horrors of two
young adults, in their fight for survival. I felt connected to both, and felt their pain and sadness when
they had to think back and explain their memories. Of course, I could not know the actual pain that they
went through, and how awfully they were treated, because I did not go through what they went
through. I got to see how strong they were and I was impressed on how a person could have so much
strength and courage to keep on going, with all the pain they suffered.”
