Holocaust survivor Stephen Ross

After speaking to the entire student body today, Stephen Ross had lunch in the library with students who wanted to hear more of his message. Mr. Ross lived in Nazi death camps from the age of nine until he was fourteen years old. His experiences were horrifying, yet he had messages of hope for all who listened. While he lost his parents at the age of nine, he asked us all to remain close to our parents. After surviving unspeakable atrocities, his faith in humanity was restored by an American soldier who showed him care and compassion after his release from Dachau. He asked us all to write to the governor of Massachusetts to ask for help for homeless veterans, saying that this should not be happening in America. Those who wish to write online can go to
