LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Esther Geizhals of Larchmont celebrated her bat mitzvah at the BBYO International Kallah in Lake Como, Pa. this past weekend.

Geizhals was part of a group of Holocaust survivors representing the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center, who spoke about their experiences growing up under Nazi occupation before 225 teens from ten countries. Geizhals, whose family was forced into the Lodz ghetto when she was 10 years old, survived the Auschwitz extermination camp, and the concentration camps at Bergen Belsen and Rochlitze, never had the opportunity before to have a bat mitzvah.
