Yeah - like the title says, We're having a holocaust survivor coming to our school to guest speak, and I'm really nervous. The atrocities commited under the nazi regime are the stuff of nightmares and I'm worried that it'll bring up some emotion in me and I'll either a)break down in tears or b)have a panicky episode and have to leave.

any advice??

Not post a thread like this in the pit would be my first suggestion.

Secondly, having experienced the same, it can be pretty intense.

If they lived through the real thing I'm sure you can live through them talking about it! Only advice I've got is go, listen, learn what happened and help make sure it never happens again

We had a halocaust survivor come to our school and talk a couple years back too. He wrote a book called Because of Romek, maybe it's the same guy, there can't be too many around. He told us some brutal stuff.

Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

I expected some of the immaturity of the pit - but tbh, it's not been that bad.

but... can it be that intense. We've been kinda building up to it, and I don't want to miss the event though

Convince your parents its good idea for you to skip school that day so as to avoid making a fool of yourself?
#20
yeah,those talks are deep man. we had a guy come in whose mother, father and baby brother were shot infront of him in a concentration camp when he was 9. pretty heavy stuff...

I had a survivor come to my school in 8th grade a few years back. I have the utmost respect for them.

Which is worse, getting emotional in front of your friends or missing an experience like that?

Definitely go to school, Eli Wiesel went to my school, it's a good learning experience.

No offense, but these poor people had barely survived through those horrific experiences, so you cannot complain about having to hear them. It's good for you to know this so that you aren't shielded or ignorant of how bad the Holocaust really was back then.

During practice once, my bass player was trying to act cool and headbang and I hit him in the face with sharp head of my washburn (accident maybe). Theres still a tiny bit of blood in my guitar, I think its kinda cool

I think you should record it. I bet if you do cry you won't be the only person in class that does.

my advice would be to listen to them, considering they'll have quite a story to tell. If you cry, then you cry, don't let anyone make you think you're weak because of it. There was a lot of shocking and emotional stuff that happened in the holocaust, so it's understandable. I went to the Holocaust museum in washington DC, and that was pretty shocking, and anyone who's been there knows that. I didn't cry (i don't think I saw anyone who was, but it was close to silent in there, other than the occasional whisper and the movement of feet) but some things they have there are just...disturbing. So yeah, i would just listen to it, and if you cry then oh well, chances are you won't be the only one.

We've had a visit from a holocaust survivor. It was horrible, he broke down in tears in front of the whole audience, he was telling us this story of one of the death marches. Not for the faint hearted.

knowing our head of 6th, we'll have to sing a hymn at the end

haha

Some of the responses in this thread are a lil bit, ahem, distasteful, but I'm not gonna be offended.

I'll just take it, and listen and learn.

Maybe playing Angel of Death halfway through mightn't be a good idea.

Wow, that would be a hell of an experience. A person who has experiences like that deserves respect so make sure he gets it from your part.
#38
my friends grandmother is a holocaust survivor, ive met her quite a few times and i really have nothing but the utmost respect for her. she told us stories about how she had to hide and watched her brother die. i nearly cried myself, just be reverent.
#39
I only hope that no scuzz bags say anything stupid.

I won't break down in tears, I know that much.

However, I might feel abit sick or panic or something. I won't be the only one though I guess.

Cheers for the advice guys btw.
