We here at Stand for Israel realize the importance of sharing Holocaust survivors’ stories while the aging survivors are still around to tell them. This report from WBALTV tells of a woman who was saved by Oskar Schindler and his list, and who shares her story with students so that the next generation will not forget:
Halina Silber shared her amazing story with the students. She survived the Holocaust as No. 16 on Oskar Schindler’s list.
“I feel that my story is important in that there was a single individual who dared to make a difference, and because of that, I am alive,” Silber said…
The students said the lesson was very touching.
“It’s almost surreal because, in today’s day and age, it’s kind of hard to believe what they went through. It’s inspiring more than anything else, not only that they survived everything they did but that they’re willing to come here and tell us about it,” said John Carroll senior Jake Kahoe.
Silber said it’s important for the survivors to share their stories with a new generation so history doesn’t repeat itself. It’s a message the students received loud and clear.
