What teachers say about Face to Face:
“Wonderful program, so moved by your history and the living archives you've collected!”
"It is hard to put into words how wonderful your program was for our students and teachers. The students talked at length about all the experiences they had that day. Many students went home and shared their day with their parents."
“This is our third year coming and as long as it is offered, I will bring my students back. It is so important for them to stand in the presence of living history and hear firsthand what happened to so many people.”
“The Face to Face experience is a treasure. I will definitely bring my students year after year. The connections they make to their classroom learning creates a solid, meaningful foundation that allows them to see history come alive.”
"Very powerful and emotional. It was an experience my students will not forget.”
"I have often told my classes that after this field trip their lives will be forever changed. Again, I have not been proven wrong."
What students say about Face to Face:
“Thank you for sharing your time and experiences with us and allowing us to have this incredible experience.”
“I hope that even after the Holocaust survivors and WWII veterans are gone, we will continue to learn and have important conversations about this event.”
"I enjoyed going to the temple and learning about your history."
"I think you are doing a very good thing by teaching us about Judaism and opening our eyes to another religion."
"The single most beneficial piece of information was concerning the fact that all the hate needs to stop in order for us as a people to succeed as a society."
"Your story has allowed me to understand that even if I was not involved in an act of evil, I would still be partially at fault because I would have known what was going on and chosen not to do anything about it."
"You have influenced me in ways that can’t even be described. Thank you so much for sharing your heart!"
"Reading a book is surely heart wrenching, but hearing a first-hand account from a survivor like you is far more ghastly and eye opening than any book can ever be."
"When you spoke to us, it all became real and it helped me understand what really went on."
"After sharing your story with my fellow classmates and me, everyone has been nicer to each other."
What visitors say about Face to Face:
"We were blown away by your Face to Face Program when we attended last Tuesday. It was remarkable. All the different components of the morning were equally fascinating with, of course the survivors being an amazing feature. What a service you and all your participants are performing for the community and mankind. Especially in the face of denials that the Holocaust occurred, your work is of immense and lasting importance. Thank you very much for an immeasurably memorable and meaningful morning. Your work is invaluable."
