Skate to Survive: The Story of Ellen Burka
Ellen Burka, who was a famous and iconic Canadian figure skating coach, survived Nazi concentration camps to become a champion skater. The YouTube video above, tells her moving and important story. I’m posting this because I was reminded of Ellen’s story when I decided to switch to the Holocaust MOOC. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to take some lessons from Ellen when I was a young skater.
