Holocaust Speaker

We were so lucky to have Michael Berkowicz and his wife, Bonnie Berkowicz, with us today. This husband-wife team of designers have made sculptures and pieces all over the world dedicated to Jewish history and remembering what we must never forget -- the Holocaust. Some of their works include "Executive Dreidel," kept in the Jewish Museum in NY, and "In the Shadow of Their Absence," a Holocaust monument in Puerto Rico. Bonnie and Michael currently reside in the mountains of North Carolina and are members of Temple of the High Country, the Jewish congregation in Boone. 

Here at Avery Middle, 8th graders have been learning about Jewish history and the unfortunate events of the Holocaust. Michael, thank you for being here with us today to share some of your experiences with us. We appreciate you!
