University High School, Fresno, CA – January 13, 2022 via video

by George J Elbaum

University High School (UHS) is a 9-12-grade free public charter high school located on the campus of California State University, Fresno. UHS provides an accelerated college preparatory education to approximately 480 students who share a common interest in music.   Approximately 130 incoming freshmen are selected each year through a lottery process.  Students receive a strong foundation in music and the liberal arts and sciences in a small high school environment and free tutorial services while benefiting from the opportunities available on a large public university campus.

My presentation was organized by teacher Hilary Levin as part of a 2-week class on the Holocaust that she is teaching with 18-20 students.  They’ve read Living Among the Dead: My Grandmother’s Holocaust Survival and discussed Ukraine’s Babi Yar, its Holocaust by Bullets, and watched No Place on Earth, less-known stories of the Holocaust, as well as its historical timeline.

My presentation was arranged by Penny Savryn, Education & Marketing Manager of
JFCS Holocaust Center.  (Teacher Hilary Levin is a member of its Educator Council.)
