Teen Wins Holocaust Essay Contest
Benjamin Tucker attends Sayre School. He recently wrote an essay about the Holocaust, and was one of ten national winners. For that, he won a trip to Boston and up to ten-thousand dollars in college scholarship money. For Benjamin, the essay was very personal. His grandfather survived a concentration camp and much more.
"He lived through the Holocaust, was shot 13 times in the arm by a machine gun," Benjamin told ABC 36 News. "He beat cancer two out of three times, and he was hit by a car. So he was pretty strong."
While in Boston, Benjamin will meet Holocaust survivors and visit Holocaust museums and memorials.
