Rose Sherman Williams
When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, Rose Sherman’s life as a twelve year old was changed forever. Over the course of 6 years, she was forced out of her home to live in a ghetto, separated from her family to work in an ammunition factory, sent to Auschwitz where she lived in horrible conditions, and was forced to march to Bergen-Belson, before being liberated by British troops in On April 15, 1945.
We are very lucky to be able to have Mrs. Williams come speak to students about her personal experience during the Holocaust. The 8th grade has been learning about the Holocaust through their English classes. Students spent 4 days in the library researching various aspects of World War II and the Holocaust to prepare for reading the critically acclaimed memoir Night by Holocaust Survivor Elie Wiesel. We believe that hearing Mrs. William's testimony firsthand will be a powerful and meaningful learning experience.
