Akiva Grade 6 students were part of a powerful moment today when we had a visit from two special guests; Holocaust survivor, Gyorgi Nemes, and Jonny Daniels, Israeli activist for Holocaust commemoration and founder of From the Depths. Gyorgy spoke of her experiences in the Holocaust, and then helped Jonny in his mission to scribe a damaged Torah recovered from the war. The Torah is being restored, letter by letter, by Holocaust survivors. The beautiful ceremony was framed by Gyorgy’s words when she was asked an important lesson to tell students about the Holocaust and she answered, “Always stand up to fight and always be a proud Jew”.
