Holocaust survivor Rose Schindler visited Immaculate Heart Middle School yesterday and shared her story with students, many of whom are learning about the Holocaust in their classes. She told students not only what she endured first at the Auschwitz concentration camp and then at a German factory, but also the struggles she and her two sisters faced returning to normal life after the war. “Whatever happens, you must not lose hope,” she told the students at the end of her talk.
