Holocaust survivor Lili Gordon recently visited North Shore Senior High School’s 10th-grade Team Spartan to relate her experiences of World War II. Prior to Mrs. Gordon’s reality setting visit, students banned together and raised money for the Houston Holocaust Museum, which enables the Museum to remain open free of charge year-round so that there is never a barrier to anyone wishing to learn about the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy. Brooke Gilthorpe, 10th grade History teacher for NSSH, says she was in search of a way to reel students into the depths of the Holocaust and truly give them insight on what it meant to be a Holocaust survivor. “The Holocaust is such an important tragedy to learn about in world history. We really wanted our students to understand the atrocities that took place and thought that giving them the opportunity to listen to a first hand account would help them to better understand it.” She said.
