Holocaust-era rail car brings survivors, students, community and understanding

Approximately 1,500 students and community members came to Chandler-Gilbert Community College's Pecos Campus on April 1 to see a Holocaust-era rail car and hear first-hand accounts of survivors in an exhibit provided by the East Valley Jewish Community Center. This was the first time the rail car has appeared on a college campus in Arizona which was accompanied by kiosks that share the stories of three survivors. George Kalman, who is one of those featured on the kiosks, was also present to speak with students and visitors throughout the day. The event attracted community members and veterans as well as many of the Valley's television stations who aired both live and recorded segments.
