According to eighth grade teacher Grace Mueller, the Miller students had spent the past six weeks studying the challenges of the Holocaust, as well as the results of intolerance in today’s world.
Williams spoke for over an hour to an attentive student audience about her experiences in five concentration camps. She rolled up her sleeve and showed them the tatoo on her arm that gave her indentification information.
Williams now resides in San Antonio and says that she considers it important to talk with young people “so that the Holocaust will never happen again.” The speaker said that she holds no grudges or anger from her war experiences because “it will do me no good” and stressed that it is important to move on.
After the lecture, Williams was treated to lunch by the Miller 8th grade language arts teachers.
