Genesis Students in Poland

February 24th 2017


67 Genesis students last week travelled to Poland where they visited the Warsaw Ghetto, Belzec, Majdanek and Auschwitz. The students were accompanied by Leslie Kleinman, survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau who told his story of how he lost his entire family and why he kept silent about it for 60 years. In addition the students visited places where there once was a vibrant and thriving Jewish life including Lancut (pictured) where a synagogue has been fully restored and maintained to this day.
