SMC Field Trip Report: The Holocaust Memorial Center
About 20 members and friends of the Senior Men’s Club went to the Holocaust Memorial Center for a talk by a survivor of the Holocaust and then a tour of the museum. Finally, we had lunch at the Stage Deli, close by the Memorial Center. As you might imagine, and with Bob Vogler’s moving brief comments on the tour, it was both educational and appalling just what happened back before some of us were born.
Above are the SMC members with a 90-year-old survivor of the Holocaust, who gave her testimony for 45 minutes on her life during the time of horror she endured. Below is a rail car that is likely to have transported Jews to their death at one of the concentration camps and gas chambers…a chilling object.
