Survivor to speak at high school


Isabel Mascarenas, WTSP

Gene Klein

On Wednesday, April 26, Club L'Chaim and students at Lake Brantley High School will present a discussion about combating hate in current times. Titled "Never Again!" the keynote speaker of the program will be Gene Klein, a Holocaust survivor and author of "We Got The Water."

Klein and his family were taken from their town in Hungary to Auschwitz in 1944. He was just 16 years old. Separated from his family, Klein was placed in a work camp. His story is one of resilience, and he has insight as to what he believes we should do about the hate in our world today.

Club L'Chaim is the Jewish club at the high school. After recent anti-Semitic vandalism occurred on the school grounds, the club members decided to take a stand against anti-Semitism through education and showing pride in their heritage.

The program will be held at the Lake Brantley High School Community Room, 991 Sand Lake Road, Altamonte Springs. Sign in and table presentation will be at 5:30 p.m., and the program begins at 6 p.m. The event is free for Seminole County Public School students and employees; $5 for all others.

The event is sponsored by Club L'Chaim and Chabad of Altamonte Springs. For more information, visit http://www.JewishAltamonte.com
