My time at the Holocaust nursing home

At the Holocaust nursing home, we spoke to a woman that has been through so much tragedy. I had never had spoken with a Holocaust victim before, and it was extremely emotional. I appreciated the opportunity so much but was overblown with the woman’s incredible story. She told us the dramatic story when her and mother ran away when they had a split second to make a decision. Although it took a while for her to warm up over time, she was able to talk to us. She wanted to educate us because we are the younger generation and should make sure the Holocaust is not forgotten. I learned so much from this trip and am excited to keep our experiences alive. The strong Jewish community can be found all over the world. I know no matter where I am; I can count on finding a Jewish community to welcome me whenever I need help.
