Sharing Survivor’s Stories – An Inconvenient Time

Dr. Mary Johnson and Ruth Ravina discusses the urgency and importance of sharing the stories of the Holocaust.

“After my husband passed away and since I have survived cancer twice, I have decided that I will speak until I have no more breath,” says Ruth.

“You can teach all you want in a classroom about the Holocaust, but the day the survivor comes, anything you have done really doesn’t count,” says historian Dr. Mary Johnson. “They have taught us a great deal about education, in terms of what makes the impact and what makes history come alive.”
