Holocaust Survivor Brings Powerful Message to Middle School Students

Ruth Kapp Hartz talks to students.Elk Ridge Middle School students heard from Holocaust survivor Ruth Kapp Hartz, who is the subject of the book titled “Your Name is Renée.” Ruth hopes that talking about her experiences of surviving in Nazi-controlled Europe as a child will help others fight intolerance and give a voice to those that feel marginalized. She says that the students of today will become the voices of tomorrow to keep the history and lessons learned from the Holocaust alive.

Thank you, Ruth, for sharing your powerful message with students.
