KAMI wish to remind everyone about the importance of education.

Esther Begam, a survivor from the holocaust during Germany invasion was forced to work.
She was 11 years old during that time and she had to stop going to school.
Her father is a rabbi, but she never saw him after he left.
Her brother and mother unluckily did not escape and was killed.
Begam shares that she came from a family who are highly educated.
She married another survivor at the age of 17.
7 years ago, she had told her story at Wayzata High School.
When asked about her greatest regret, her answer is not getting her high school diploma.
A teacher who was also heard what she said came up with the idea to give her a diploma.
Unluckily, her idea was turned down.
When the new principal took over, the teachers plan was agreed.
Attended by Begam’s grandchildren and great grand children, she finally got her high school diploma.
