The John Carroll School is proud to host members of the Jewish resistance, Holocaust Studies experts, and students from across greater Baltimore for our second annual memorial event, “Lessons of the Shoah: The Long‐Term Legacy of the Holocaust,” Tuesday, February 3.
LOTS is a day of exploration, dialogue, and commemoration that uses the Holocaust and its lessons as a starting point to promote tolerance, understanding, and respect between students of diverse backgrounds. There will be small group workshops and discussions, testimony from survivors, and presentations and reflections from current students.
Last year’s program was very well attended despite inclement weather, and this year promises to be even bigger, with twenty schools from across the region in attendance. The students, staff, and faculty of the John Carroll School are honored to share with the greater Baltimore community what promises to be a life-changing event.
Throughout the next month, in honor of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, students of the John Carroll School will commit not only to learning the history of the Holocaust, but to acting on what they have learned, so that the stories of those lost, as well as those of the survivors and liberators, remain alive for future generations. In addition to “Lessons of the Shoah,” members of the senior class will visit the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. on February 23. And on February 24, John Carroll will host a Holocaust Remembrance Day, when students will spend the day with survivors, including Ms. Halina Brunengraber Silber, who survived the war because she was rescued by Oskar Schindler when he put her to work in his factory.
