What Others Have Said About The Holocaust Shoe Project

Prussing Elementary School - Chicago, Illinois - April 8th, 2011

Alan – Prussing Elementary School was honored to have you as a guest speaker. The students and faculty were inspired by your father’s story and much discussion took place before and after your visit.The way you interacted with our students in grades 1st thru 8th was a masterpiece. Your knowledge and your presentation skills were masterful.

Our Prussing Cares shoe drive was a huge success due to the enthusiasm you showed; we collected 313 pairs of shoes. It made a difference! Thank you for telling a hard story and for teaching all that this is a story that never can be forgotten. I guarantee our students will never forget.

The Brandeis School - Lawrence, NY - March 11, 2011

On March 11, 2011, the middle school students at The Brandeis School were honored to have Alan Morawiec speak to them about the Holocaust, tolerance and the importance of tikkun olam. Mr. Morawiec is an eloquent speaker who presented the story of his father’s incredible journey to survival and the Holocaust in a gentle way. His father’s story coupled with the video presentation easily engaged the students. Certainly, the children gained a new understanding of the meaning of endurance and how we can all make a difference. To date, our students have collected almost 300 pairs of shoes which will be donated to those in need.

Alan's presentation was moving and inspiring. His message about this terrible period in history is timeless and he did a wonderful job of helping our students understand how they can insure that such evil not be repeated any where at any time. I highly recommend Alan's presentation. Being a teacher himself, he knew how to engage our students and make it relevant to them.

Evergreen Middle School, Evergreen, CO - April 29, 2008

It was our pleasure to have Mr. Morawiec visit us here at Evergreen Middle School. Our students were not only engaged but also visibly moved by Mr. Morawiec's presentation. Though the material can be heavy, Mr. Morawiec's delivery is such that he educates while simultaneously enthralling his audience.
