By the age of seven, Nadia Rosa was stripped of her childhood and forced into survival mode by a brutal Nazi regime. Captured while in hiding in 1945, Nadia and her mother were sent to the Auschwitz death camp. They were later re-routed to Theresienstadt Concentration Camp and liberated later that year. Nadia survived, but lost many family members in the Holocaust, including her cousins and grandparents.Today she takes solace in the fact that she continues to honour the memory of her fallen family members.Others were not so lucky. Of the estimated six million Jewish people who perished in the Holocaust, many were families who completely vanished. After visiting Auschwitz two years ago, Rosa had a stunning epiphany which she shared with students and guests during last week’s appearance at Bishop Tonnos Secondary School.
