    Over the past 20 years, bearing witness to the Holocaust through Survivor testimony has played an integral role in Holocaust education. In this program, descendants of Survivors share their families’ personal histories with students and other audiences using their own voices, first-hand video testimony from a filmed personal interview with their parent or grandparent who survived the Holocaust, artifacts, photos and their own personal history of growing up in the shadows of the Holocaust. This presentation will focus on the story of Rose Lipszyc. A self-taught bookkeeper, Rose became a tireless Holocaust educator of adolescents, and for her inspiring testimony and dialogue with the young, she has been awarded the Order of Canada in December 2021. Her narrative and history are being told by her daughter, Carol Lipszyc.
