Helga's Story

Filmed at the Heschel School

Helga was one of 7 survivors who took part in the Witness Theater program at The Abraham Joshua Heschel School in New York City. This program was convened by the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan with students from both Heschel and the Trinity School. Over the course of nine months she took the high school students through her experience of World War II.  Her pensive manner of speaking drew students close, ultimately resulting in intergenerational, lifelong friendships being formed.
