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.”
