USNA Superintendent Vice Adm. Ted Carter visited the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., this morning to honor Holocaust survivor Nesse Godin for her service to the Naval Academy.
For 20 years, Godin has lectured at USNA, teaching midshipmen about the mass genocide of World War II and how good leadership is important in preventing such atrocities in the future.
Godin spent several years in various concentration camps during the war after the Nazis invaded her home when she was 13. In January of 1945, she was one of only 200 women who survived a death march, out of 1,000 who started.
Godin has dedicated her adult life to teaching about the Holocaust.
