PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Dozens of high school students gathered at St. Joseph’s University for the 41st Annual Youth Symposium on The Holocaust.

Simone Gorko helped organize the event.

“It’s a unique opportunity for them to actually meet a survivor, and to get to ask questions and to hear their story and see that these are real people,” Gorko said.
