In this session Michal Lotzkar and Naomi Newman, children of survivors, and Ingrid Steppic, child of Righteous Among the Nations, will offer a look into the process of uncovering their parents' stories, finding documents, and the challenge of confronting their family histories to become classroom witnesses. Learn of the work of Legacy Speakers in the Pacific Northwest, featuring video/audio presentations.
