Lesson overview: 

The Holocaust lessons were created to help students learn about the Holocaust from the testimonies of Holocaust survivors. Lesson 3 shares the recollections of a 12-year-old girl whose entire family were taken away, including her siblings and both parents. The girl's mother insisted that she stay in hiding and told her daughter that she would survive. The girl eventually found the strength to get out of the trunk she was hiding in and go outside. When asked about being Jewish, she lied, saying she was visiting a Jewish friend, and then she ran and ran for miles.
