Barrack Draws on Holocaust


Barrack Hebrew Academy planned a special exhibit as well as a talk by a member of Schindler's List in commemoration of the Holocaust.

The Holocaust was the focus of two special events at Barrack Hebrew Academy in recent days.

Addressing a school-wide assembly commemorating Yom Hashoah was Celina Biniaz, one of the survivors on  Schindler's List. Her talk was  put together by Barrack HEAR (Holocaust Education and Reflection) Club to honor National Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Meanwhile, this past Sunday, the school presented the grand public opening of the 9th grade Barrack Centropa Museum of Balkan Jewry. The  exhibit deals with Sephardi life prior to, duing and post-Holocaust times in the Balkans. On display are six-foot pannels showcasing relevant stories as well as a showing of videos. The opening exhibit — which attracted close to 200 guests — was accompanied by Ladino tunes and Sephardi food tastings.

The display runs to April 12.
