August 26, 2013 (El Cajon) – “The smell of burning bodies was 24 hours a day. Some put their hands on the electric wires and died…killed themselves,” said Rose Schindler, Holocaust survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. 

Rose and her husband Max were at Grossmont College to give a talk on their shared experiences during the Holocaust to students of the Summer Institute Program (S.I.P.) on July 22.  Their goal is to make sure that the world never forgets the horror of the Holocaust, in hopes that such a tragedy will never happen again.

March 29, 2010 (San Diego -- Each year, San Diego Jewish Academy hosts a Remembrance Ceremony for Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) in partnership with the New Life Club, a San Diego-based group of Holocaust survivors. The ceremony will focus on honoring the 6 million Jews, 1.5 million of whom were children, murdered in the Holocaust.

 

Survivors will share their stories with students to ensure that an important part of Jewish history is passed on to the next generation. With most survivors now in their 80s, the event could be one of the last opportunities for students to hear these historically significant individuals’ stories first hand.
