RKYHS Students Remember the Holocaust and Heroism

RKYHS brought students together for Yom HaShoah to hear inspiring stories of survival, to remember those who were murdered and to honor those who survived. Students heard from Michael Zieger, a child survivor who fled Nazi persecution and lived for two terrifying years in unspeakable conditions under the barn of a selfless righteous gentile in Poland. Zieger emphatically imparted his message to the students to remember their stories, especially long after their generation is gone, to stand up to hatred and not stay silent.

Afterwards, there was a screening of the film “The Trial of Adolf Eichmann,” followed by a tribute to all those that perished in the Holocaust led by student and faculty representatives reading poems, essays and songs in Yiddish, Polish, Russian, Hungarian, French and Hebrew, then translated into English. The program concluded with the singing of “Hatikvah,” side by side with Zieger and his family.
