It is common for Holocaust survivors to visit schools and make presentations to students.

But at John Carroll School recently, about 30 seniors turned the tables, giving a 40-minute presentation that included a video montage and poetry as a tribute to 14 Holocaust survivors who came to the campus.

“Our presentation is our way of giving back to the people who survived the horrible Holocaust,” said John Kline, an 18-year-old Jarrettsville resident. “What I learned this semester about what they went through helped me realize how special life really is. And I think it had a powerful impact on us and the survivors.”
