I have learned a lot from the holocaust. This year we are having survivors come into our school. I really want to hear about their lives. I have a tremendous amount of respect for them.

After lsitening to the stories it made me realize how valuable life is. To see what people had to go through makes me so sad; I dont see how such individuals can be so cruel. Watching videos, looking at pictures, and reading "The Night" by survivor Elie Wiesel, made me cry. I couldnt even imagine the hatred and cruelty these people got towards them. Its very sad. Im glad that those who did survive got to share their stories with us. :(

I read the stories appears at "Life After" and I feel grief and sadness that the survivors had been through so much pain and they really couldnt do anything to handel with the unknown situation.
I think this project is very important to anyone especially to me- Holocaust researcher.
In fact this project contains just several stories and I am intersting in more: Like life after of Haim Solomon, Alfred Traum and the list is long.
Would you be kind to tell me how to find the stories of more survivors after the Holocaust. I looked trought the Web and find just a few.

I read their stories and i feel so sad for them that they had been through so much pain and there really wasnt anything that they could do about it and how wrong the Germans were for doing something so horrible to human beings.

After listening to the survivor’s story, I felt interested, because the survivor’s story of his life. One thing that I found particularly interesting is that he had changed his name three different times. After the survivor escaped, he had a hard time getting a job. I was surprised to learn how many survivors were still alive today. I was shocked to learn that the Nazi’s killed the people in the concentration camps many different ways.

The reason I did this was for a Language Arts project, but then I started to think that the Holocaust was cool to learn about. The survivors shared their stories, so I could learn how they survived through all of the things going on around them. It was also surprising how terrible it was back then. I also found it surprising how Hitler hated all of the people that were not like him. I found it surprising how they separated everyone, when they got to the camps. It was interesting to hear how life was, and how they survived in the concentration camps. I hope that this never happens again. shmm.org

After listening to the survivors story I felt really bad for Blanka because she had broken ribs and a broken spine. I also felt happy for her because she got out of the concentration camp and didn’t have to go through it like her family might have. Something else I learned is that after she finally came to the U.S, I was surprised to find out that guy came around showing a picture of her (Blanka’s) grandmother. I have been thinking also and wondering if the man with the picture knew she was coming to New York. Or if he was just showing the picture to everyone to see if they knew who was in that picture, so he could help them.

After listening to the survivor’s story I felt sad because hearing them tell how their families died was very sad and how they survived and went back for her mom but her mom died at a concentration camp. Something that I learned was that she is very smart because she got away 2 times. I learned how they got away and how they treated
