Holocaust Survivor Shares Living Memory with #SASAtoms

On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, the textbook material came to life for #SASAtoms when Marion Blumenthal Lazan, Holocaust survivor, shared her unforgettable memoir of the devastating years she spent in Nazi Germany that shaped her childhood.
Following Hitler’s rise to power, the Blumenthal family — father, mother, Marion, and her brother, Albert — were trapped in Nazi Germany. They managed eventually to get to Holland, but soon after the Nazis occupied it. For the next six and a half years the Blumenthals were forced to live in refugee, transit, and prison camps that included Westerbork concentration camp in Holland and the notorious Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany. 
Exposing our #SASAtoms to powerful living memories helps stretch their worldview and prepares them to be active, engaged citizens.
