PARK RIDGE, N.J. -- Martha Sternbach visited West Ridge Elementary School recently to share her real-life stories of survival with young people studying the Holocaust history.
School officials said she recounted her years growing up comfortably before Adolf Hitler came to power, her deportation to Auschwitz, the murder of her family, her slavery and eventual liberation.
She spoke about her love for America, as well as her family, saying she wanted to spread the message that “nobody should discriminate against anyone,” school officials said. She also took questions from the students.
Sternbach lives in River Vale at the Jewish Home Assisted Living with her husband.
