Holocaust Survivor To Visit LL October 15th

English 9 students welcome Lou Leviticus, a Holocaust survivor who lost parents in Nazi-occupied Netherlands during World War II, as a culminating event to a 5-week unit. Students explored three different genres of story-telling from Holocaust Literature: Night (Elie Wiesel), Maus (Art Spiegelman) and Schindler' List (Steven Spielberg). Thematic readings of each genre studied how opinions, biases, hatred and injustice led to one of the darkest stories told in our world's history. Contemporary "readings" of our society reveals that opinions, biases, hatred and injustice actively influence us today.

Leviticus, a speaker registered with the Nebraska Humanities Council and professor emeritus at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will bring to life actual stories and challenge our audience to make the obvious connection between different eras of injustice. This event is open to our Lincoln Lutheran families free of charge. He will be speaking to the school-wide audience October 15th from 9:30-10:15 and join all English 9 students for a focused breakout session from 10:25-11:05. Please join us!
