Alameda High 10th-Graders Focus on Lessons of the Holocaust


Alameda High School is conducting Holocaust Studies Week on campus, according to Martin Gross of the school’s history department.

On Tuesday, March 29, students in the 10th grade watched “Schindler’s List,” the 1993 film about a German businessman saved the lives of more than 1,000 Polish-Jewish refugees during the Holocaust.

And on Wednesday, March 30, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:45 pm, three survivors of the Holocaust will be speaking to sophomores on campus — in the Kaufman Auditorium, Little Theater and the Media Center.

As Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel and other victims of the Holocaust remind us, “To forget the actual victims is in fact to kill them a second time.”
