N.Y. school honors Jewish athlete banned by Nazis – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

N.Y. school honors Jewish athlete banned by Nazis – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News.

Since December, 2009, I’ve been studying an online course given by Sheryl Ochayon from Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies, an online educational institute.

The course is Germany: 1918 – 1943. We’ve studied each period of time in a series of 12 installments. My final project is on this wonderful woman, Margaret Lambert who was formerly known as Gretel Bergmann. (The courses are interesting, thorough and involve readings and writing short essay style answers. Check them out)

So, today, how good it felt to click onto Ha’aretz.com to find this link.

Read the article and notice how strong this woman is today at the age of 96. Note the question and her answer:

Asked earlier what message she would pass on to the young athletes who will compete at the Margaret Lambert Track and Field in New York, she said, “I hope they keep it honest and stay away from steroids.”
