Temple Judea meets a survivor of the St. Louis!

Holocaust survivor Renate “Ronnie” Breslow, who was a 7 yr.-old Jewish girl in 1939 when she sailed with her mother to Havana aboard the St. Louis only to be turned back to Nazi Germany by the Cubans and FDR, spoke about her journey to our students and staff last night.
We were so lucky to hear her first hand account of that historic incident!  She had us mesmerized.  Just imagine…

The Last Witness

Ever think about who will be the very last Holocaust survivor on earth and what would become of that person?

Check out “The Last Witness” a new novel by my friend, Canadian author Jerry Amernic and please like/share his Facebook page too!

Watch for an American/Canadian partnership in mandatory Holocaust and Genocide education.  An interview is coming soon!

Un Ponte per Anne Frank (A Bridge to Anne Frank)

Ciao Italia!  Read Un ponte per Anne Frank – A Bridge to Anne Frank’s Italian interview with 94 Maidens author Rhonda Fink Whitman!  Please “like” the page on Facebook too!

94 Maidens is proud to announce an American/Italian partnership with A Bridge to Anne Frank in promoting Holocaust and Genocide education and building awareness of Human Rights Violations and the rise of anti-Semitism in both the US and Italy.

Grazie to Sofia Domino for the awesome interview!  If your Italian is rusty (or sadly non-existent like Rhonda’s), please read it in English here  

William Tennent H.S. Part Deux

English teacher Mrs. Shannon Christine doesn’t need a law to mandate that she teach the lessons of the Holocaust to her students. She invited us back to Warminster, PA for a second year and this time we brought survivor Manya Frydman Perel to speak to the students about the will to live, the strength of faith, and the ability to hope.

Thank you, Mrs. Christine and students for inviting us! It was truly an educational and inspired morning!
