Daniel Goldsmith, a Holocaust survivor from Belguim, detailed his experience.

Eighth-grader Vienna Varano said, “It’s amazing how brave Daniel and the other children must have been, knowing they could have been caught at any moment. Sometimes I complain about the small things in life, but after hearing his story, I realize how lucky I am to be free.”

Seventh-grader Owen Sherwin added, “I feel that having a perfect race as described by Hitler is unacceptable because we should all be treated with the same respect.” ••
