Syosset High School welcomed seven survivors of the Holocaust for a day of reflection, remembrance and respect for one another.

Coordinated by Social Studies Administrative Assistant Thomas Fusco, Library Media Specialist Lynn Ortlieb and teacher Richard Cafiero, Holocaust Remembrance Day brought tenth-graders together at different times of the day to listen to compelling presentations and testimony from speakers/survivors Annie Bleiberg, Gloria Gantz, Alex Konstantyn, Mordechai Miller, Werner Reich, Irving Roth and Mireille Taub. Some of the speakers brought images of the Holocaust to help illustrate this tragic time in world history. They all emphasized the importance of respecting others, including those of different ethnic and religious backgrounds.
