Freedom Middle School had a special visitor on campus, a Holocaust survivor, according to a post on Facebook. 

Joe Alexander visited the middle school, sharing his experiences at 12 different concentration and work camps, including Auschwitz. 

He described to the students how he was given a tattoo with six digits immediately entering Aushcwitz. 

The Language Arts Department at Freedom planned the visit as a follow-up to their study of the Diary of Anne Frank.
