Meeting Between Jewish and Catholic Students on Holocaust Memorial Day Makes the News in Germany

Feb 16, 2006 — Days into their trip to Germany in January, a contingent of students from Yeshiva University High School for Boys (YUHSB) had the thrilling experience of watching themselves on the national news.

The group of twenty boys had just spent the day—the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, designated by the United Nations as Holocaust Memorial Day—getting to know a group of Catholic high school students, explaining their Orthodox customs and observances, and enjoying a tour of Berlin led by the German group. A camera crew from RBB, the German state television news station, shadowed them throughout their activities.
