Lindbergh Schweitzer Welcomes Holocaust Survivors

Lindbergh Schweitzer Service Learning Magnet invited four Holocaust survivors to speak to students last week. Attendees then painted ceramic butterflies together in memory of the 1.5 million children who lost their lives in the Holocaust. The butterflies are from the Butterfly Project entitled “Zikaron V'Tikvah - Remembrance and Hope” and will be installed on the walls of the school in the spring. Pictured here is Holocaust survivor Rose Schindler. Also in attendance were survivors Max Schindler, Gerhard Mashkowski and Hannah Marx.
