As an exploration into social responsibility, Ms. Kinsi King’s Honors English 2 sophomores read the Holocaust text, Rena’s Promise: A Story of Sisters in Auschwitz. To understand the reality and personalize the experience, two traveling Holocaust exhibits were brought into the South Iredell High School media center and Holocaust survivor, Dr. Zev Harel, came to speak to over 350 students and staff in the Performing Arts Center.

Dr. Harel’s address to the audience sincerely stressed not holding onto hate and doing what is right. He stressed that we should all think about what we can look back on and not be ashamed of doing.

Ms. King stated that, “As we become more removed from the events in the Holocaust it is ever more pressing to understand what happened, how it happened, and what can be done to prevent such atrocity in the future. “
