Presentation from holocaust survivor delivers a powerful anti-bullying message

Eva Olsson“Powerful.” That is how Sedgewick Central High Vice-Principal Stephen Hoyland described Eva Olsson’s presentation on Thursday, Oct. 2, after she spoke to students from all around Flagstaff County in Sedgewick.

Olsson started by telling students that almost 70 years ago, this month, she lived in a hole in the ground as slave labour.

“I want to talk to you today about hate, bullies, and bystanders,” she said.

She asked the students, teachers, and other members of audience to indicate by a show of hands, “How many of you use the word hate?”

“I don’t use that word,” she said, “hate is a killer, not a joke. I taught my grandchildren not to use it.

“I don’t like being called names, and I don’t like being pushed around, but I don’t hate.”

Olsson said she’d been bullied by the Nazi bullies, “The ultimate bullies.”

Why was she bullied? “Because I was ugly? Because I wore the wrong colour of nail polish? Because of my hair colour? No, it was because I was raised in a different religion.”

“I can’t understand why Canadian children bully each other. Why?” Read More →
