Bill Orlin, a Holocaust survivor, recently visited with nearly 200 MacArthur High School students.
Orlin detailed the journey he and his family made escaping from Poland to the United States.
The junior U.S. History students also heard from a 16-year-old German teenager. She is a descendant of a Nazi. She is confronting her ancestors’ atrocities.
Their presentation was followed by a question and answer session to enable students to better understand the nature of the Holocaust and to explore its lessons in more depth.
The speakers invited the students to attend the Holocaust March of Remembrance. The event took place April 22 at the Holocaust Garden of Remembrance at Kings Harbor, in Kingwood, TX.
Deborah Johnson is grateful for the visit. She hopes that students will learn from the past to build a better future. Johnson is secondary program director of social studies.
“The presentation encouraged students to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust,” said Johnson. “Students had the opportunity to learn where prejudice and racism can ultimately lead.”
