English 9 Guest Speaker

Thank you to Julie Ohana, granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor, who spoke to English 9 Classes at Mercy on February 1. Students finished reading the book Night, so they got to connect and hear another story from living memory and had time to ask their own questions. This was especially important and impactful since 1/27/23 was International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
