CHANDLER, Oklahoma -- Students at Chandler High School heard amazing stories from Holocausts survivors' daughters.

Cilia and Hadasa Bau are the daughters of Joseph and Rebecca Bau, the same Bau family documented in the movie Schindler's List.

Despite all odds and being shipped to different camps after their marriage, Joseph and Rebecca reunited after the war.

After hearing the stories of hope, joy and love from their daughters, many of the students came away with a new take on life.

"I learned that hope is something really important that you need to keep by your side. And to look on the bright side. Laughter is the key to life," said student Karissa Fent.

The sisters are in Oklahoma through next week.

Chesapeake Energy helped pay for some of their expenses to come to Oklahoma.
