WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I’m inspired by these students in their outreach and compassion. Together with the survivors, each one has become a teacher of history that must be remembered. It is also so gratifying that you - in your own way - have shown us that this and future generations will not stand aside when they have a chance to tell a story that can make a difference for the good of all of us."
— Steven Spielberg, Academy Award Winning Director, speaking to the students at Manhattan Day School
