Local students are getting an education in Holocaust history from a local woman who lived it.

Gussie Zaks is part of the New Life Club of San Diego, made up of local Holocaust survivors. They travel to schools around the county to share their stories with students.

She says her experience impacts many teenagers because she was their same age when the Holocaust took place.
