            Heidi Omlor presented our evening’s program based on the “Holocaust & Jewish Resistance Teacher’s Program”.  This program has been in existence for 30 years and was founded by Vladka and Ben Need to teach our teachers how to present material to students concerning the plight of those persecuted during the Second World War and about the underground resistance which developed as a result.
“You can not live among us as Jews.  You can not live among us.  You can not live.”
Heidi visited many sites in Germany including Bergin-Belsen, Berlin, Wannsee Villa, Monument of Mockery, Ravensbruck, Sachsenhausen.  She went on to Poland visiting Krakow, Auschwitz-Birkenau where the “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign is located, Belzec, Majdanek, the Warsaw Getto, and Treblinka.  Heidi spoke of the challenges teaching this subject when there is nothing one can now do to make amends for what happened.  We can only teach about what happened to be sure that it never happens again.  It was a very moving presentation.
