SCOTCH PLAINS – On March 10, Kathy Webber’s freshman accelerated and honor classes at Union Catholic High School welcomed Peter Fleischmann, a Holocaust survivor, to their respective class. Both classes had recently finished reading “Night” by Elie Wiesel. During his visit, arranged by the Jewish Federation of Central Jersey, Fleischmann spoke of his family’s escape from his home in then Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and shared family photos as well as pictures that he took during return trips to Prague and surrounding areas.
