Reverand Richard Walston
and his wife, Janet, of St.
John Lutheran Church in
Fowlerville, also joined the
HMC trip.
"I've had a long, steady in-
terest in the Holocaust, ever
since I was 10 years old,"
Reverand Walston said. "In
the 1950s, my parents invited
a young woman, through an
agency that was trying to
help people after the war, to
live with us. She was a Ger-
man gypsy who survived
Auschwitz but saw her
mother die in the gas
chambers, and her four
brothers died from typhus
while they were at the con-
centration camp. During the

`The synagogue in
Warsaw featured
70- and 80-year-old
Jews who were
begging and
confused.'

two years she lived with us,
she told me stories that have
stuck with me. I've always
been interested in that part of
history."
Walston said that prior to
the trip, his education on the
history of the Holocaust was
limited.
"Before, I had spoken a lit-
tle on the Holocaust, but I
think now I'm more commit-
ted to do some teaching, mak-
ing myself available to com-
munity education in our
home town. I hope that I can
reach out beyond my church,"
Walston said.
Southfield resident Charles
Upfall survived a Russian
concentration camp for four
and a half years, but his fami-
ly wasn't as fortunate.
"My real objective to go on
this trip was to see Treblinka,
where all my people died,"
Upfall said.
But Upfall was shocked by
present conditions at
Auschwitz.
"As we walked through the
gates, there was a bar and a
place where cheap jewelry's
sold. I had never heard of
such a thing. It should not be
a place where people get
drunk. This is a shame."
The trip concluded in Israel
where the teachers heard lec-
tures by Holocaust scholars.
For the teachers, it marked
the end of an emotional but
educational trip. But for Vine,
the trip had a different
meaning.
"I just wanted to go into
that place as a free man and
walk out," Vine said. "I never
dreamed I could reaffirm that
Hitler, the Nazis and Ger-
mans weren't able to com-
plete their task."
