Names, Not Numbers ©
How Moving Stories Impacted Students
by Daniel Avitan
Names, Not Numbers © is an organization that dedicates itself to telling the stories of Holocaust survivors so that it will never happen again. Many schools, including our very own, have interviewed hundreds of survivors! Academy Award Winning Director, Steven Spielberg, stated, “I’m inspired by these students in their outreach and compassion. Together with the survivors, each one has become a teacher of history that must be remembered. It is also so gratifying that you – in your own way – have shown us that this and future generations will not stand aside when they have a chance to tell a story that can make a difference for the good of all of us.” This year, students from grades 6-8 interviewed 3 Holocaust survivors: Judy Lefkovitz, Rose Raport, and John Woolf. Their stories truly made an impact on these students’ lives. The Holocaust was a terrible time, when the Jewish people doubted survival, but in ‘ה we trust. They survived with hope and praying, and they found light in the darkness. Names, not numbers symbolize how when Jewish people were given numbers and treated horribly, they never lost hope, and never lost their name. Your name tells the story of who you are and what you have been through. Never lose hope, and never lose your name.
