CPC remembers Holocaust survivor

A group of students and their teachers recently unveiled a memorial to one of the last Irish Survivors of the Holocaust Zoltan Zinn-Collis, writes Noel Clare.

Zoltan was a regular visitor to the school up to the time of his death in December 2012 and he is fondly remembered by the many students that he spoke to over the years about the holocaust and his time in Bergen Beltzen concentration camp as a child.

Zoltan's wife and three of his daughters attended the memorial service which included the planting of a tree and the unveiling of a specially commissioned plaque.
