Granddaughter of Holocaust survivors to share stories in Park City

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — On Sunday, April 14, the granddaughter of four Holocaust Survivors and speaker Judi Schink will be sharing her experiences on how to dismantle hate in all its forms through the lens of her family’s stories of surviving the holocaust.

The event, which is free to attend but requires an RSVP, will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 11 a.m. in Park City at a location to be disclosed once an RSVP is made.

Jennifer Riff said the organization decided to hold the event in light of the recent incidents of antisemitism in Park City schools and in the world currently.

“We would like to invite anybody interested, but especially families with children 6th grade and older to a talk about being an upstander to hate instead of a bystander,” Riff said.

Shink has spent over 30 years as an educator, speaker and consultant. She brings expertise, strength and knowledge from those who came before her to this poignant issue.

In a statement about the upcoming event, Shink wrote: “As the granddaughter of four Holocaust survivors I have the honor of sharing their incredible legacies with you. I will introduce you to my grandparents, the people I knew for many years and the people I did not come to know until much later, the survivors. I bring you insight into their lives before, during, and after the war – from the towns of Miechow Poland and Trnava, Slovakia to numerous cellars and death camps to their journey to the United States. We will discuss how to dismantle hate in all its forms and most importantly, how we can do better today.”

In late March, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights found that the Park City School District repeatedly failed to adequately respond to over 180 cases of student reports of racial, antisemitic and sexual harassment. The district entered into a federal agreement over the findings on March 21, which will require the district to report how it handles all harassment complaints to the Office for Civil Rights throughout the 2024-2025 and 2025-2026 school years.
