The seniors involved in Names, Not Numbers© reached a critical stage of their project this week: filming their interviews with Holocaust survivors. Students greeted the survivors at the door and escorted them to the library, where they were interviewed by four or five seniors.
Senior Tally Soleimani was part of the group that interviewed Mrs. Rochelle Epstein. Tally reflected, “This was one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. Reading stories of the war from a book is one thing, but when you hear it in person, from someone who is alive now, it makes everything come to life.” Once the seniors finish filming, they will go on to editing and cutting their recordings.
