Holocaust survivor will speak at the on July 25th at 2 p.m. She has requested that young people attend her talk because she has a message of inspirational courage for them:
‘Remembering the Holocaust is not enough. Young people cannot wait for someone else to do the right thing when they see someone doing something wrong. Step in. Be a hero. It’s the little things on the bus, in the locker room, on the internet, that could lead to tragedies like the Holocaust.’
Mrs. Shorr will recount her experiences of surviving the concentration camps of Terezin and Auschwitz — where she appeared before the infamous Dr. Mengele — as well as Bergen-Belsen, where Anne Frank perished.
Her inspirational message will be given at the meeting and will be an opportunity for students 5th grade and up, as well as other interested individuals, to also meet veterans of WW II.
