6th Grade Magnet Video-Conference

6th Grade Magnet Video-Conference 6th grade magnet students participated in a video-conference with the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles where students listened to a real-life Holocaust survivor express her painful journey as a Jewish girl growing up in Nazi-ruled Poland. Gloria Ungar recounted the moments of suffering and terror as her family tried to hide and escape the injustices that swept across Europe during 1939-1945. At age 14 she was stripped of her rights because of her religion and ordered to work in concentration camps. She lost all her family members except one brother who after WWII moved to Sweden with her to start a new life. Later they came to the United States and here they worked, went to school and established their lives. After the lecture, students had a chance to ask Gloria questions about her experiences during the Holocaust.
