GT English Classes are reading the Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl and are doing Big 6 research to find the causes of the Holocaust and what it was like to live through it as a teenager.
Of course it's alarming when people don't know *anything* about the Holocaust or even worse, deny its existence.
The Pope yesterday released that he "Strongly Condemns Holocaust Deniers"
Isn't it amazing after 64 years and countess eyewitness accounts, books, and testimonies there are still people who deny that the genocide even existed?! This is something that i think our kids need to face...to get a proper perspective on the historical facts of the events that led up to the amazing piece of prose that is the Diary of a Young. What do young people already know about the Holocaust..??
Here is an MTV short about what Teens know about the Holocaust
Here's an interesting video about Anne Frank as a Writer
