Holocaust Oral History Visits

Crestwood continues to receive visits from Holocaust survivors in order to enrich student learning regarding this tragic period in history.  Denise Hans, as well as Faigie Libman, visited Crestwood grade 8 English classrooms last week, sharing their personal experiences during the Holocaust.  Crestwood grade 8 English students are currently reading the award-winning novel The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas and these visits are bringing the novel to life in ways not possible through text or screen.  We are honoured to have their stories shared with us.
