RAHWAY — On Thursday, May 27, sophomores and juniors at Rahway High School listened to first-hand accounts of the Holocaust through the “Survivor Speaks” program sponsored by the Metro West Holocaust Council.
Holocaust survivors Gina Hockberg-Lanceter and Ed Mosberg spoke to students during an assembly, which was made possible by the efforts of English teacher Debra Natoli, who also serves as the Multi-Ethnic Cultural Club adviser.
Hockberg-Lanceter was saved at the age of 14 when her parents threw her from a transport train and Mosberg is a survivor of the Krakow ghetto as well as the Plascow and Mauthausen concentration camps. The Plascow camp is featured in “Schindler’s List” for the atrocities prisoners faced at the hands of Commandant Amon Goeth. Mosberg was liberated from Mauthausen in 1945 after the arrival of Allied forces in Austria.
