Holocaust Survivor Speaks to Elementary Students
Marion Blumenthal Lazan Will Make Two More Stops in the Northland Tomorrow
SUPERIOR, Wis. – A Holocaust survivor spoke to kids at Northern Lights Elementary School in Superior today.
Marion Blumenthal Lazan spent many years of her childhood at a concentration camp in Germany.
She published her story Four Perfect Pebbles in 1996 and now spends time telling it to kids across the United States and teaching them the importance of having respect and tolerance for one another.
“I hope when Marion leaves here today, that my students believe that no matter the obstacle, they too can overcome it,” says Northern Lights 5th Grade teacher Stacy Burfield. “I hope that they show a greater sense of humanity as they age and head towards the middle school.”
“I think Marion’s book teaches us that everyone is blessed with beautiful gifts that need to be admired and appreciated.”
Marion will tell her story tomorrow at 9 a.m. at Superior High School and at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
