Holocaust survivor speaks to Plantation students

PLANTATION, FLA. (WSVN) - A Holocaust survivor shared her story with students at an elementary school in Plantation, Tuesday.

Zelda Fuksman shared her experiences with students at Mirror Lake Elementary.

School officials said they hope to teach pupils, who learned about the Holocaust this month, the importance of tolerance. “The message really is, never again. There was a Holocaust,” said Gigi McIntire, a counselor at the school. “There are other things going on in the world today, and we hope our kids can learn to help each other.”

Fuksman specializes in speaking to young children about the Holocaust and provides age-appropriate answers. This is the second time she has spoken at the school.
