The Holocaust remembered, survivor speaks to Harry Hurst students
Mrs. Anne Levy, one of the few Holocaust survivors left in the New Orleans area, was a guest speaker for Harry Hurst Middle School. Pictured from L-R are 8th graders Emily Duhe, Andrea Ybarra, Beverly Bagby, Devon Jenkins, and Austin Suren.
Levy shared her story of being moved to one of the ghettos in Germany to hiding in a small apartment with a very brave family to eventually being on the run, after Hitler took control of the country.
Some students were moved to tears when they heard what Levy, her younger sister and her parents had to endure when they were younger. The 8th graders had been learning about the Holocaust through their unit of study in reading class. Levy told the students that she shares her story with them because there are people out in the world who say that the Holocaust never existed.
The students now are able to answer back that they have heard from a first-hand account that the Holocaust did indeed happen. The students now have a true story they can share with others for many years to come.
