ROSEMOUNT HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS VISIT THE MONTREAL HOLOCAUST MUSEUM

MONTREAL, APRIL 8, 2016 With heavy hearts, Grade 11 students from Rosemount High School recently visited the Montreal Holocaust Museum.

The visit was in advance of April 28, when three Holocaust survivors: Ted Bolgar, Steven Hopman and Willie Glazer will share with Rosemount students their story from the Holocaust, which fortunately, is one of survival. The survivors will also address the rise of religious intolerance in the world and the importance of spreading world peace and promoting acceptance and understanding.

Rosemount students have spent this year focusing on the children of Holocaust survivors. Children of survivors represent the last direct link to Holocaust survivors and as such, keep the memory of those who died alive for future generations.

The visit was coordinated by Mr. Vince Lacroce, Spiritual and Community Animator, along with Mr. Antonio Scozzari and Mr. Paul Paterno, teachers at Rosemount H.S.
