Students Inspired by Author Irene Zisblatt
After studying Night by Elie Wiesel, some 8th Grade students elected to read The Fifth Diamond by Irene Zisblatt. Mrs. Zisblatt is a Holocaust survivor and the grandmother of senior Andie M. Mrs. Zisblatt shared her experiences and some life lessons. Students got the opportunity to have their books signed. They hugged and thanked Mrs. Zisblatt for her courage and determination to share her story. Mrs. Zisblatt showed her precious diamonds to the students and allowed them to touch the diamonds as a bridge from past generation to the future.
