PARK SLOPE - A holocaust survivor shared her story with students at St. Saviour High School in Park Slope today during a special program.

Sally Frishberg, 79, was born in Poland in 1934. Her father decided to take their family and flee when German resettlement began in the Eastern part of the country. She says that her family hid in the attic of a family friend for two years - surviving on beans and potatoes.

"She had to go through so much and she showed so much courage," said student Julia Dineen. "[Her story] inspired me to persevere and whatever I am dealing with on a much smaller scale, I can go through it."
