CHGS-Muskegon has been working with West Shore Community College to bring an awareness of the Shoah (Holocaust) to the Ludington community for the last two years. This year, the Commemoration did not fall within the WSCC academic year, but they reached out to the Ludington Public High School and its principal, Dale Horowski who was very enthusiastic about the venture.
His enthusiasm was shared by the Ludington students who attended one of the three sessions with Dave Lux. Rabbi Alan and Mrs. Anna Alpert attended the event with Dave and his wife Helene.
Rabbi Alpert writes, “On May 3 Anna and Alan Alpert accompanied David and Helene Lux to Ludington High School. The Principal Dale Horowski greeted us and brought us to the library. David Lux told his story as a Winton Kindertransport survivor to two sessions of approximately 100 students each. They listen intently and asked questions. In addition to speaking to two large sessions of students, David met with teachers and spoke to a Special Education Class. Mr. Horowski, the teachers, and students were grateful that Mr. Lux met with them.”
