BROOKLYN - Grandchildren of Holocaust survivors are speaking out as a way to ensure their families' stories are never forgotten.

Earlier this week, Jewish people from all over the world honored Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Holocaust educator Felice Cohen met with students Friday at Edward R. Murrow High School in Midwood to share her grandparents' survival stories from World War II.

Cohen is a member of the nonprofit organization 3GNY, or Third Generation New York. The group is composed of grandchildren of survivors who visit classrooms throughout the tri-state area to share stories of survival.

Cohen says it is more important now than ever before to be sharing these personal stories.

Murrow High School has been offering Holocaust education classes for a number of years.
