We were honoured to have Mr. Orlev as a guest speaker in ISR on March 3rd and 4th. Mr. Uri Orlev is a world-wide award winning children’s author and a survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto and Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Over the span of two days, he spoke with our 5–12 grade students.
The students were very excited to have the opportunity to interact face-to-face with Mr. Orlev. They were so concentrated on his stories that you could hear a pin drop. As he shared his encounters, the students’ curiosity caught fire and they asked many well-thought out questions. We would like to sincerely thank Mr. Orlev for taking the time to bring a part of history closer to the students.
