Here is what a Mark T Sheehan High School Sophomore said about this story:
Perseverance is an understatement to describe the unbelievable hardships Holocaust survivor Judith Altmann faced in the mid 1930s and 40s. The level of respect I hold for this spectacular woman is unmatched as she has the courage to still talk about her dreadful experiences to inform the rest of the world about this horrible event as well as prevent it. Judith reflects on her worst fears becoming reality in this podcast and tells us how she did all that she could do to save the human beings around her along with herself. We all should be grateful to have this hero talk to us about the horrid conditions she survived through when she was only a young teenager.
