Holocaust Survivor Visits Mt. Carmel
Posted on July 24, 2012
Mount Carmel High School students were treated to a presentation by holocaust survivor Hanna Marx in late May. The inspirational speech of survival was well received by a standing room only crowd of students.
Hanna was only 13 years old when she and her family had to pack their suitcases and leave home by train. For three years Hanna was a slave laborer in a Nazi concentration camp, and her father as well as two brothers had been killed by the Germans.
Near the end of WWII, Hanna was among the 5,000 Jews that were forced to take part in the Death March that lasted three months. She was one of only 300 that were still alive at liberation. Mount Carmel High School hopes to have Hanna back in the future to share her tale of strength to students.
