This year the F.H Collins History class is hosting a series of events to educate our society on the dangers of prejudice, racism, and hate.

Robbie Waisman is an 83-year-old Holocaust survivor, who was only 14 when he was sent to Buchenwald. He will be sharing his story with the public on Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. in the F.H. Collins gymnasium.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and we will have the Anne Frank Exhibit open for tours during this time. These events coincide with Holocaust Education Week.

This is a momentous event, as it may be one of our last chances to hear the story of a Holocaust survivor first-hand. You may think teenagers could care less about Remembrance Day, but we feel it is important that our society is educated on the dangers of prejudice and hate, and that we learn the possible outcomes of such discrimination.
