Although the pandemic has closed Rockland County’s Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education, Holocaust survivors continue to speak to schools and groups via Zoom and other digital mediums. Paul Galan, a Holocaust survivor and the museum’s co-president, recently gave a talk to Valley Middle School 7th graders in Oakland. To say thanks, their teacher Ruth Kokkinakis arranged the tribute collage pictured above.
Every year Mr. Galan speaks to the students at that school. This year his visit became virtual — but no less impactful.
