Near Normal Man

Near Normal Man - Holocaust Survivor Program at the Clinton Presidential Library

On Oct. 3, 2018, the Jessieville High School GT group attended the “Near Normal Man” Holocaust Survivor Program at the Clinton Presidential Library. The program centered around Ben Stern, a man who survived two ghettos, nine concentration camps, the Nazi physician Josef Mengele, and two death marches before being liberated by American troops in 1945. The program began with a viewing of Near Normal Man, a 30-minute documentary film, featuring a first-hand account by Mr. Stern. At the end of the presentation, some of our Jessieville students were able to speak with Mr. Stern about his experiences.
