Holocaust survivor Sami Steigmann visited the fifth graders on Thursday, December 1. Mr. Steigmann was just a year-and-a half years old when he and his parents were sent to a Nazi labor camp in the Ukraine. Mr. Steigmann spoke to the boys in a very age-appropriate way about the causes behind the Holocaust, and of his personal experience and how it has impacted his life. He spoke of the need for boys to recognize that pain and joy are "two sides of the same coin" and that to experience joy a person must also acknowledge the pain in life. He noted the importance of forgiving others, as it is only through forgiveness that we forgive ourselves; and urged the boys to cherish each day of freedom and to volunteer for the greater good.
