Visit of Heschel High School students

February 2016

On February 17th, 2016 students of the Heschel High School NY and students of Słowackiego High School in Kielce visited the School of Dialogue students in Suchedniów. This is what the Heschel’s group lead teacher and Forum’s friend Shmuel Afek wrote to us immediately afterwards:

“First, I would like to congratulate you on organizing a marvelous and extremely meaningful visit to the gimnazjum im. Stanislawa Staszica in Suchedniow. The pupils were extremely well prepared and they presented their work proudly (and – understandably – nervously) giving us a glimpse into Jewish life in their town.

This is obviously due to the quality of the students themselves, the support that they received from the school administration, their teacher Pani Berlinska, but first and foremost to Kasia and Karolina, the educators who worked so hard to make our visit successful. As you know we traveled to Suchedniow with students from the big city of Kielce, who were very impressed by what they saw and learned. What can I say? It was everything I could have hoped for, and having worked with you for the last 3 or 4 years it was a most authentic demonstration of the truly amazing (may I say, unique?) work that you are doing throughout Poland.“
