Holocaust Survivor Speaks to DEC Students
Werner Reich, a Holocaust survivor, visited the Deaf Education Center to speak to students about the history of theHolocaust, the meaning behind the Nazi destruction and the challenges he faced throughout the Holocaust.
Werner’s presentation was eye opening for the students, as he taught them about hate crimes and judgments, and gave them a better understanding of the Holocaust.
“We don’t want tolerance, we want acceptance,” Reich said. “Regardless of race, color, age or sex.”
He explained to the students the definition of the Holocaust, which is Greek for “a whole burnt offering,” and described the Nazi’s destruction of selected groups and their culture.
Reich left the students with one final thought. “All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing.”
