On September, 14 2018, Evelyn Altenberg from the Holocaust Memorial Center honored both the teacher and student body with a story that explained how her parents escaped death during World War II. She was the first of Lawrence Woodmere Academy’s Global Speakers.  Mrs. Altenberg spoke to the audience of Upper School students and faculty. The students sat in awe as they heard the beautiful love story of Lilo and Hans that kept them both alive during the hard and dangerous times of the Holocaust.
