"The grateful survivors came from Israel, Canada and the United States to a three-day history symposium at Hudson Falls High School. Seven prisoners of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp thanked veterans of the Army's 30th Infantry Division for saving their lives and told hundreds of students in the school auditorium about the terrifying conditions the prisoners endured as children.

I am glad to see we have some good news if you will on this site. I was at another, and those on that site seem to think the holocaust was a Hollywood-style melodrama (to be polite). Frankly, these people who write such trash scare me that they can not accept what history has shown us. Tis a shame. Thanks for posting this link for us to read.

Great post and story, it's part of life but still a shame that in the near future, there will be nobody left who was actually there. Thankfully, so many have been interviewed and their experiences made part of history.
