Holocaust Survivor Talk
More than 100 St. Gabriel’s girls, parents and staff crowded into the theatre after school on 25th March to hear the personal testimony of Holocaust survivor Joanna Millan.
Joanna spoke about her experiences and gave us a broader insight into the Holocaust. Born into a Jewish family in Berlin, she was put into a Nazi concentration camp in 1943. Her parents died in the camps, leaving her orphaned. She was adopted by an English couple when the camps were liberated in 1945 and struggled with her identity for decades.
It was an engrossing and thought-provoking talk, and an incredibly valuable experience for all who attended.
