Holocaust Survivor Speaks to Tenth Graders

Monday, March 19, 2018

Mrs. Bronia Kraus paid a visit to Carol Morgan School on March 15th to speak to tenth grade history students about her experiences growing up in Nazi occupied Poland during WWII.  It was a great privilege for all involved to hear her incredible story of survival. Mrs. Bronia was a young Jewish girl in Poland when the horrors of WWII and the Holocaust were visited upon her.  She shared with students and staff her experiences in the ghetto of Lodz and the concentration camps in Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Her message put a human face to the tragedies that the students had been learning about in their WWII unit in history class. The experience touched all who attended. Despite all that she witnessed and the sorrows she suffered, Mrs. Bronia’s message was one of hope. She passionately reminded us all to never give up on humanity and to never allow ourselves to hate.
