Friday, 8th grade students at Grant Middle School had the chance to speak with a holocaust survivor.

Eny Hirte is 97 years old and she spent Friday speaking to her great-great grandson's class.

Originally from Norway, Hirte was captured by the Germans and sent to work at a concentration camp in Germany as a nurse.

Hirte is not Jewish, but she was still starved by the Germans.

She took some time before the class to tell us about her experience.

"Hitler was a bad person," Hirte said. "when he came in to Norway and took over that was a mess. We were forced to work in a concentration camp and it was not a good thing to be.

Hirte was rescued from Germany by an American soldier who later became her husband.
