Kadena HS - Holocaust Survivor Presentation

Kadena High School
Okinawa, Japan | January 20, 2022

On Thursday, January 20th, students at Kadena HS had an opportunity to listen to a firsthand account from Holocaust survivor, Dita Kraus. Ms. Kraus is a published author, painter, public speaker and retired English teacher. She is the subject of the book “The Librarian of Auschwitz.” At the age of 13 she was sent to the Ghetto Theresiendtadt, later Auschwitz and then Bergan-Belsen.

Thank you to Mr. McGrath at E.J. King and Ms. Rigor for their collaboration and organizing the event for our students.
