Holocaust survivor to students: "The hate must end."

SITKA, ALASKA Middle-school students in Sitka learned about life during the Holocaust from someone who was not much younger than they were when Hitler developed his “Final Solution.”
Peter Metzelaar was five-years old in 1940 when Nazis rolled into his native Amsterdam. Now in his seventies, Metzlaar is an active member of the speaker’s bureau of the Washington State Holocaust Education Center.
He was in Sitka this week (5-20-09) to speak with students about his life, his narrow escape from death, and his regrets during the Holocaust.
