Our 7th graders traveled to the Holocaust Memorial Center this week. The experience was one many of us will never forget. Through guided tours, our students observed pictures, videos, newspapers, clothing, weapons and an assortment of other historical memorabilia that helped tell the story of this dark time in history. Our field trip concluded with a powerful presentation by a Holocaust survivor. The memories shared were insightful--yet painful to hear. Despite all the suffering the survivors endured, they left us with a message of hope and resiliency. If you're interested in checking out this amazing facility, visit www.holocaustcenter.org.
