Today, Aaron Elster, Holocaust survivor from Sokolow, came to see the town with a group from Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. The group was about 35 people (who later went on to Tykocin). We went with Aaron and Susan Abrams - CEO of Illinois Holocaust Museum - at the cemetery to see the grave of Mr and Ms Gorski who saved Aaron's life.
A group of instructors from Shem Olam Institute in Israel came to Sokolow today to see the town and learn how to teach their students about its history. Next time they will come back here with their groups.
