Hedi Mckinley – Holocaust Survivor
On Friday, June 1st, Mrs. Schuttenberg arranged for Heidi Mckinley to speak to Knox students, faculty, and parents. Heidi Mckinley, 96, grew up in Austria, right next to Germany. She shared her life story about escaping from Austria in the late 1930s. She spoke about how one day two boys appeared at her door demanding her family to leave, saying “All Jews out.” The boys used to deliver goods for Heidi’s father’s meat store. Mckinley, who was 18 at the time, took their home key and hid it in her clothing. The family was warned by the Nazis not head back to their apartment. She eventually went back to the apartment to pick up some items and found things basically destroyed — food was smeared over the floor and her two goldfish were dead. She said she saw Hitler and described him as ugly with green eyes. This was a unique opportunity for the
students. Mckinley looks forward to returning to Knox next year.
Mckinley held a question and answer session after her presentation. The students had many questions. She only allows pictures after her presentation due to unexpected flashing of cameras has affected her since the Holocaust.
