SANDY RUBENSTEIN
HOLOCAUST EDUCATOR

Sandy Rubenstein is a teacher at the Horace Mann School in New York. Teaching is her passion, what she loves to do and has been doing for over thirty years. She is also the child of Holocaust survivors. In 1996, her father, Joseph Horn, published his memoirs, Mark It With a Stone, the fulfillment of a life-long dream. In 2008, the book was reprinted in paperback, with an introduction written by Sandy Rubenstein from the point of view of a child of survivors.

Joseph Horn was also interviewed by Steven Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation in 1995 and left behind a three-hour visual and oral testimony of his recollections of the war years, a gift for his family and for future generations, a tribute to the loved ones who perished, a record of his ordeal.
