Last week Year 10 classes talked to Mordechai Miller and an educator at the Museum who provided the class with such a unique insight into the Holocaust. The girls were incredibly moved by his story and appreciative of his generosity in sharing it. They wrote to him and outlined how the video conference had made a difference to their studies of the Holocaust and their understanding of the world.
Here are some comments from students:
Your story of recounting the years you spent in hiding in the ghetto and running was so moving for me. I cannot believe how lucky you were when that bullet nearly hit you but instead hit your suitcase! I enjoyed the video conference so much and admire greatly your obligation to retell your story on behalf of your mother.
Thank you for talking to our class about your personal Holocaust experience. We have been truly privileged to listen to you. Your story was very interesting and helped me understand more about the Holocaust for history.
Thank you so much Mr Miller! We appreciate the time you have taken to tell us your courageous story. It is really interesting to hear it from a survivor. You story taught us a lot and helped us with our understanding of the Holocaust. We know you have gone through a lot – thank you again.
Thank you for sharing your story. I can’t imagine what life would have been like. I hope that the events like World War II stay in the past and never happen again.
