Hetty at Carmel School

A true favourite of the many WA Senior schools, Hetty visits during the year, is Carmel School, where last year she shed a tear at the genuine out-pour of appreciation from the students, who attended her talk there. This year was no different, not a peep from the students whilst Hetty spoke of her experiences, so beautifully written in her books and many hugs and always great thanks for this Perth grandmother who shows how much she loves all children.

Hetty tries to make each session she has with her students, who attend her talks, an experience, they will never ever! forget. Although each time the reaction to her story is similar and the respect Hetty gains from each individual child becomes obvious, Hetty likes to entertain and keep the students attention, by varying her talks about her many experiences, yet each ending is virtually the same. She reminds the children, yes, life goes on but to please never forget the day she met them and to pass it on to their parents and then later to their own children.

It is up to the current generation to pass on their knowledge to the next and that includes the history of the Holocaust.
