Current eighth-grade students and new students were eligible for the scholarships.

“Today is a wonderful first for our school â€" we are truly blessed to be recognizing our first Golda Och and Schechter Scholars,†said Upper School Principal Nancy Leaderman.
She added, “In creating these scholarships, our Board and administration have taken the core values of our school â€" academic excellence, commitment to Jewish study and tradition and the nurturance of the next generation of leaders in our Jewish community and world â€" and sought to embody those values in students who show remarkable promise and achievement.â€

Sala Garncarz Kirschner ended her silence when, in preparation for triple by-pass surgery in
1991, she handed her daughter, Ann, a wallet full of letters. Sala Garncarz Kirschner, (who turned 87
in March 2011), survived the surgery and â€" finally - revealed her wartime experiences to her family.

Sala was taken from her home when she was 16 and survived five years in seven different Nazi forced-labor camps. Saving the letters she eventually passed on to her daughter Ann became inextricably
linked with saving her life. The letters were not mere pieces of paper: they were the people she loved,
friends and family waiting for her return. She risked her life to preserve the letters always managing
somehow to take them with her from camp to camp.

Sixth-graders Samuel Z. of Montclair and Joshua S. of West Orange peruse the Letters to Sala exhibit. 
Liberated in 1945, Sala came to the United States as a war bride, and hid her papers in a closet. Five
years of her life were also hidden until the day she revealed the existence of more than 300 letters,
photographs, and documents.

Sala’s story is, above all, a story of life and one young woman’s way of seeing beyond years of horror.
From her letters, we learn about friendship and love, Jewish life in occupied Poland, Nazi labor camps,
the intensely human need to rebuild life after the catastrophe of war, and the ability of words to give and
sustain life.

Through the Elbaum’s generosity, the exhibit, Letters to Sala, is on display in the lobby of Golda Och
Academy, (1418 Pleasant Valley Way, West Orange), through Friday, May 27.
