5th/6th Grade Trunk

Why did we choose the theme, “Through the Eyes of Children?”

This trunk, devoted to the Holocaust as perceived by children, attempts to share the experiences of just a few of the one and a half million children who perished, as well as the stories of the youth who managed to survive, and the courageous stories of individuals who risked their lives to help others. Through this focus on children, students will attain a more personal understanding of the Holocaust and the difficult circumstances with which people were faced.

Students are encouraged to consider the effects of stereotyping, alienation, and prejudice. It is through the study of the Holocaust that students can learn about social and individual responsibility, decision making, and the difference just one person can make.
