Reflections from Cracow

Posted on 04/26/2014 @ 10:00 PM

"I was walking through the streets of Krakow and helping BBYO's survivor, Trudy, walk with our group. She thanked me for helping her and said 'I'm grateful to have you all here as my guardian angels.' It was so sweet and so amazing but I told her that she is our guardian angel. We are so lucky to have her here; Trudy is honestly an incredible person! I love her so much already and can't wait to continue this journey with her." - Molly Kazan, Wisconsin

"As I sit in the Krakow deportation site, the feeling is unreal, complete numbness." - Carley Fritsch, Pittsburgh

"Bearing witness is an understatement to what we're doing here." - Brandon Cotter, Dallas

"Before leaving for the March, I thought I knew everything I needed to about the Holocaust, but now that I'm here, I'm starting to realize that there's so much left to learn and I can't wait to do just that on this trip." - Eliana Dubosar, Boca Raton

"During Friday night services, people were singing and dancing. Watching hundreds of Jews celebrating our faith made me feel proud to be Jewish and finally free." - Daniella Eglash, Pittsburgh

"I am looking forward to being able to understand life in the eyes of those who came before me." - Natalie Engel, Houston

"It is our goal to live to learn to teach." - Brandon Bell, Philadelphia

"I hope to open my eyes to the world and have a voice." - Sarah Goodman, Cleveland

"We've only been together for three days, but I feel so connected to everyone else on this trip already." - Carly Taub, Michigan
