We All Wore Stars: Memories of Anne Frank from Her Classmates by Theo CosterIn 1941, Theo Coster was a student at the Amsterdam Jewish Lyceum, one in a class of 28 Jewish children that the Nazis had segregated from the rest of the Dutch population. Among Theos fellow students was a young Anne Frank, whose diary would later become one of the most important documents of the Holocaust. In this remarkable group portrait, Coster and five of his fellow classmates gather their personal stories and memories of Anne. The accounts collected here do not just help us to rediscover Anne Frank. They also stand on their own as remarkable stories of ingenuity and survival during the Holocaust--from Albert Gomes de Mesquita, who hid in ten different towns across Europe--to Hannah Goslar, who experienced the horrors of Bergen-Belsen but also made a miraculous reconnection with Anne days before her death.

Krystle, who wore a pacemaker because of a congenital heart problem, ran just a few plays in the first part of the game. El Cajon Fire Department personnel arrived within minutes and transported Krystle to a hospital, where she died about 9 p. When Krystle was born, Seiler said, doctors told the family her heart condition was so serious she might not live to be 5 years old. Recently, Krystle celebrated her 18th birthday by going snowboarding. Your courage and zest for life was inspiring.

I just turned 12 when I left elementary school and started secondary education. Going to school was not a good idea. At least not for me …. The first couple of months were doable. It took me quite a while to adapt to the new situation. I was young for my age. The three years that followed consisted of being chased by this pack of wolves in and around school, in class, on the yard, on my way to and from school- there was never a moment to catch a breath, never a moment where I could come to my senses, no protection or help at all from no one.

Chaleb said he would have thought year-old Josh would have been the last to catch alight, but the fire ran across the desk in front of Chaleb and another boy and set Josh alight. After his hair, face and collar were put out, we stood back to get out of the road so the teacher could use the fire blanket. Photo: Daniel Johns. When the fire was out, the students were sent from the classroom to another classroom and Chaleb said the Ambulance paramedics were there within 10 minutes.

Skyler came to Facing History New Tech as a freshman in , the year that the school opened. The following year, he took a yearlong Facing History class required for all sophomores that explores issues of identity, civic participation, and membership in communities today and throughout history by looking at difficult moments in the past, including the Holocaust and the American civil rights movement. The subject matter spoke to Skyler from the start, in part because he was doing a lot of thinking about his own identity and how he fit into his own school and home community.
