Mr. John Rosenberg, Holocaust survivor visits NCMHS

 

On Tuesday, November 7, 2017, Mr. John Rosenberg, Holocaust survivor, paid a visit to the students at Nicholas County Middle High School.  Mrs. Eaglin's Honors English II and Mrs. Graves-Harmon's Reading class recently read Night  by Elie Wiesel.  This book is a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps during the Holocaust.  To deepen understanding of the book and the historical event, many students filled the cafeteria to listen to Mr. Rosenberg's story about his family escaping the Holocaust and coming to the United States.  Mr. Rosenberg was born in Magdeburg, Germany in 1931, and escaped Europe in 1940. John is a legal services lawyer, the former director of the Appalachian Research and Defense Fund of Kentucky (AppalReD). He has lived in Prestonsburg since 1970.

"For many years, when I spoke publicly about my legal services work, I spoke as a project director or civil rights lawyer, but not about the Holocaust, because it seemed irrelevant to the subject I was called to address," Rosenberg explained. "When I started talking about how relevant the Holocaust was to our lives, I learned how important it was for me to speak about it. Now I speak regularly to school and church groups about the Holocaust."

The teachers, staff, and students thank Mr. Rosenberg for sharing his story and words of wisdom with us. 

Board of Education Offices Have Moved

Effective immediately, the Nicholas County Board of Education offices have been temporarily relocated to the Nicholas County Elementary Library  due to a chimney structural problem. 

All phone numbers and contacts will remain the same. Visitors needing to access the board office should use the lower library doors in the elementary. Parent pickup will be in the elementary gym starting tomorrow, Tuesday, October 24, 2017. 

Thank you.
