Duration   30m

Surrounded by starvation and death, children in the Łódź ghetto had a hard time imagining their future. But Jewish headmistress Stella Rein fostered an atmosphere for students to learn and grow. Stella’s devotion never wavered—even after the school closed.

As American students return to school, join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to honor teachers who nurtured the minds and spirits of Jewish children during the Holocaust—some at great personal risk.
