On Monday afternoon, Holocaust survivor Marion Blumenthal Lazan addressed the classes of the Lincoln Junior High School. Among the total enrollment, 20 students from each of the three grade levels -- sixth, seventh and eighth -- were selected as the top winners in an essay competition about World War II and the Holocaust. Each of the winners received a signed copy of Lazan's book "Four Perfect Pebbles." Lazan was a toddler when her family was ripped from their home in Germany and placed in detention camps. All the members of her family survived the ordeal, though her father died within just a few weeks of the family's liberation. LDN will have more about this special event at Lincoln Junior High in a future edition.
