Detailed Ratings

I think BRTC is a great College . They have some very smart instructors that are very kind, and will go out of their way to help you to learn . Before I was even a student there, my granddaughter was a student taking a class on the Hollocaust . Her instructor invited both of us to her home for dinner, and to meet a man that had been a teenager during and in the Holocaust . This was a verygood experience for me because I had always been interested in this . I was born in 1946, and my Mother used to tell me things about WWII . About Hitler, and how he had all of the Jews killed .I had already read some books on the subject, but this man made it very real to me .
