Testimonials: Rachel Spiro

The Eternal Flame was a great experience for me to learn about the Holocaust with other teens from my community. We had deep conversations and pondered things together that made me think about my life and the lives of those who endured the pain and suffering in the Holocaust. Hearing the story of a real Holocaust survivor was absolutely amazing and meaningful for me. As I listened to the survivor’s story along with my peers, I recognized the importance of being educated in the Holocaust as the last generation to live amongst survivors.

It is our generation’s job to retell these stories and horrifying realities to the generations to come so that it is never forgotten. By educating the people in our generation about the Holocaust, this fellowship is allowing the chain to continue unbroken.
