April 30, 2014 - McDowell High School students heard first hand about the Holocaust from a survivor who has been speaking about her experience in Erie this week.

Holocaust survivor Marion Blumenthal Lazan was at McDowell High School this morning.

It’s one of six Erie schools she visited over three days.

She speaks about her first hand experience from her family's events before Kristallnach to imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps and then to liberation.

Lazan asks her audiences to be tolerant of others regardless of age, race sex or religious belief.

Students at McDowell were inspired and moved by her discussion today.

More than one million students and adults across the world have heard Lazan's message.
