Two Survivors Tell Their Stories

Witnesses and Testimony

Grades: 12 
Duration: 20 minutes

In this ceremony students commemorate the experiences of two Holocaust survivors and their families, one from Germany and one from Italy.

During the Holocaust, it is estimated that the Nazis and their collaborators systematically murdered approximately six million Jews. Those who survived had to cope with their memories, altering their lives forever. As many survivors chose not to or could not speak of their ordeal, we will never know their story. However, many others felt compelled to relate and give eyewitness accounts of those dark days and pass on their legacy to future generations.
