The Holocaust: The Art of Memory

Never Forget. As part of a study of the Holocaust, class members watch a PowerPoint about Terezin and then read selections from I Never Saw Another Butterfly, Children’s Drawings and Poems from Terezin Concentration Camp, and then craft their own response to the pieces. A powerful reminder of a national and international tragedy.
