mischief in Hebrew school
despite three-hour long
classes. Floch still re-
members her lessons, espe-
cially in Hebrew and Jewish
history.
Even after graduation,
Floch returned to the school
to teach while she was in col-
lege. Then she got a job in a
public school and later
became principal at Hillel
Day School for nine years.
Floch credits her parents
and teachers at the Hebrew
school with teaching her the
importance of having a Jew-
ish education.
"We came to Detroit be-
cause my parents wanted us
to have a Jewish education,"
said Floch, who used to live
in a small town near Alpena
with her three brothers. ❑

About The Holocaust

Hebrew school wasn't so
great, Fisher said. She's
heard remarks like "my
father forced me to go" or
stories about what they did
to make a teacher miserable.
In a letter to reunion or-
ganizers, Louise Maier, nee
Goldstein, remembers how
she and a classmate used to
pretend to have trouble with
their contact lenses so they
could hang out in the
bathroom together.
Fisher also heard stories
about teachers who made an
important impact on a
graduate's life.
"They get very nostalgic,"
she said.
Floch said Hebrew school
has changed over the years.
When she went there was
never any time to get into

ilently walking, hand
in hand, 4,000 Jewish
students from around
the world began the two mile
walk from Auschwitz to
Birkenau.
Sara Guyer, a Berkley
High School senior, can't
forget the image.
"It was very eerie," said
Guyer, one of nine Detroit
area students who returned
last week from the March of
the Living. On April 22,
students commemorated
Yom Hashoah, Holocaust
Remembrance Day, by walk-
ing the March of the Dead. It
was the same path concen-
tration camp inmates were
forced to walk.
"We were all gathered
together, all wearing the
same blue jackets. Everyone
looked alike," Guyer, 17,
said. "We marched from
camp to camp and everyone
came out of his home like it
was a Fourth of July pa-
rade."
"It seemed, like it was 50
years ago. We didn't say
anything. About midway we
saw the black smoke in the
distance. We didn't know
what it was, but it was com-
ing from Birkenau. In the
camp they had built a bon-
fire. But from the distance, it
looked like the smoke corn-
ing from the crematorium."
When Sherry Domstein, a
17-year-old senior from
Berkley High School, walk-
ed out of the gates at
Auschwitz, she felt like an
inmate marching to her
death.
"At first I was really upset

and crying," Domstein said.
But watching 4,000 people,
each wearing blue jackets,
marching to Birkenau "gave
me a feeling of pride. We
have survived. We are
strong. We're still alive."
Emotions were erratic as
students toured concentra-
tion camp sites in Poland
and then traveled to Israel
during the 10-day March of
the Living trip.
The students' first stop in
Poland was Treblinka,
where a monument of 17,000
stones testifies to the

places like this

destruction of each city,
town and village.
Todd Wolfe, a 17-year-old
senior at Farmington North,
said "Looking at the stones
at Treblinka, you would
think they represent each
person; there are so many.
Every Jew should see it, but
you have to be prepared."
Ellen Kogan, a 16-year-old
junior at Birmingham
Groves High School, said it
was a gorgeous day when
they went to Treblinka. "I
kept thinking places like
this don't deserve beautiful
days."
Inside Auschwitz, the
students saw piles of hair
and glasses once worn by
concentration camp victims.
Each barrack of the camp
has become a museum.
Guyer said at first she
