McBride Students Participate in Holocaust Remembrance

Days of Remembrance includes McBride Students

McBride School
Ft. Benning | May 5, 2016

May 4th, seven students from McBride Elementary School participated in the Days of Remembrance ceremony for the Maneuver Center of Excellence. This ceremony, which took place at the National Infantry Museum, was to remember and honor the victims of the Holocaust. Our students delivered inspiration al readings to commemorate this tragic time in history. The students also handed out paper butterflies symbolizing hope for the future. McBride's students in grades 3-5 had also made paper butterflies that were used to decorate gardens at Martin Army Hospital. The program, with guest speaker Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, was thoughtful and uplifting as we remembered the past and sought to learn from the many acts of courage described by Rabbi Adlerstein.
