ASHWAUBENON — Andrea Rabinovitz lost her mother in 1999 — but she’s determined that her mother’s stories about the Holocaust not be lost.


She told about 265 Parkview Middle School students that the descendants of Holocaust survivors have a responsibility to pick up stories where their parents left off so the world won’t forget.


Her uncle Erwin was sent to the Dachau concentration camp in the early ’30s and was shot for stepping on the grass — after a guard had told him he could no longer step on the concrete.

He died in a Munich, Germany, hospital.
