Harriet Thompson Elementary School and the Holocaust Center for Humanity based in Seattle are working together to bring history to life for the school's fifth grade class.
Doris Berg, a second generation Holocaust survivor, will talk to the students about her mother's story, including her escape from Prague, her grandparent's death in Auschwitz and how the entire family eventually made it to America.
After her presentation Berg will take questions from students.
The presentation is the culmination of the work Harriet Thompson's fifth grade students have put into learning about the Holocaust. It's a chance for them to hear, first hand, what they've been studying about in books.
Berg will give her presentation at the school at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 24.
