Visit to Memorial de la Shoah, Paris

September 27, 2011, was the start of a memorable day as part of my recent visit to Paris, France.  I met with Fabrice Teicher and Jacques-Olivier David of the Memorial de la Shoah (http://www.memorialdelashoah.org/getHomeAction.do?langage=en) to discuss and share Holocaust education ideas.  The Memorial sponsors international, teacher training, and specialized educational programs for school age children as young as age 8. It was a great opportunity to meet both Fabrice and Jacques- Olivier, we discussed the possibility of Voices of the Generations making a future presentation at the Memorial.  When Hanna & Walter, A Love Story (https://vogcharity.org/vog/hanna-walter-a-love-story-2/) was first published in 1984, it was translated into several languages including French.  It is my hope to someday have the book translated again, and available to French speaking students and the public as a personal account of my parents story. We also hope to find support for translation of the Hanna & Walter curriculum into French (currently available in English and German.)
