When Highland Park junior Anna Raab made a petition calling to reinstate Highland Park High School’s Holocaust Remembrance Day assembly, her goal was to receive 200 signatures.

As of Jan. 21, Raab’s petition received 5,000 signatures.

During the 2017-2018 school year, HPHS changed its Holocaust Remembrance Day programming from the annual assembly to an event that takes place in the school’s library, in which students have the opportunity to sit at small tables with Holocaust survivors to hear their stories and ask questions.
