Adopt a Survivor Project
recipients: Lori Menning, School District of New London, WI
date: Fall 2011 and ongoing

This grant provided funds for a local Holocaust speaker and child survivor of the Holocaust, Mr. Henry Golde, to come to the New London school district. Students in Ms. Menning’s class began by sharing their current Holocaust work and inquiry studies and then introduced Mr. Golde to an audience that included bilingual students, Culture Club members, faculty from across the disciplines, members of the school board, and students in art, English, and history classes. The students went on to write Mr. Golde’s biography as part of their participation in the Adopt a Survivor program. They presented their completed work in a ceremony at the end of the school year.
