Joseph Lewkowicz – Holocaust Survivor
On Thursday 21st November Year 12 were incredibly lucky to hear from Jospeh Lekowicz a survivor of the Holocaust. They watched a film recently made about his life and heard his inspirational story.
The whole event was inspiring and the students were deeply affected by it.
“For me as a young Jewish man, meeting a survivor from the worst persecution any race has ever suffered was, as cliché as it sounds, life changing. Hearing the stories from a hero who lived through it allowed everyone to connect and understand a little bit more how awful it was. It is impossible for us to comprehend what happened, however the talk gave us that insight and understanding on what truly happened. Reading books and watching films does not compare to meeting a holocaust survivor in the flesh. He is a truly incredible man and I believe everybody should hear his story and I feel truly privileged to have met and listened to him speak. I cannot thank him enough.”
