Annual Youth Symposium on the Holocaust


On Tuesday, January 29, 46 St. Basil students attended the 42nd Annual Youth Symposium on the Holocaust at Gratz College. Students had the opportunity to have small group conversations with Holocaust survivors, as well as listen to a keynote address from Daniel Goldsmith, a Holocaust survivor whose experiences included 2 years hidden in a Catholic school after the German invasion of Belgium, as well as Nazi capture, and eventual escape into hiding within the home of a priest. It was a great learning opportunity for our students and an experience that will help them better understand the human experience of the Holocaust and the ongoing challenges of genocide.
