Jordyn Jacobson, 12th grade, and Arielle Goldman, 10th grade, participated in the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center's High School Living History Program this year. This was a new opportunity for students to participate in an intergenerational program connecting Holocaust Survivors and teenagers. Each student met with a survivor numerous times throughout the year to document and share their stories. The High School Living History Project not only impacted the individual students, but also the community as students documented survivors’ stories so they will live on, for generations to come, and never be lost.
Arielle retold the story of Holocaust Survivor, Judith Altman, and published it on a webpage. She also created artwork, inspired by Judith. Judith Altman: Her Story
After meeting with Holocaust survivor, Betty Knoop, Jordyn will tell her story through a series of diary entries from her perspective, beginning with her 6th birthday and going all the way to her life after the war in the United States. This project will be posted on the HHREC’s website soon.
