Yeshivah students in Flatbush received a living history lesson on the fate of the Jews who died in World War II on this year's Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Jehuda Lindenblatt was 7 years old and living in Hungary when he was forced to wear the Jewish star on his coat. He told students he hid in shelters with his family for most of the war.  

Lindenblatt says it is important to let future generations know what happened during the war.  He says hate has not stopped, as similar atrocities still happen in the world today.

The 80-year-old says that as long as he is alive, he will tell others about the conditions he survived as a child growing up in Hungary.
