Students Respond to the
Holocaust/Genocide Project

"Working on the Holocaust/Genocide Project has allowed me to share the story of my family with students all over the world. I am also glad that the project allows for worldwide knowledge about the Holocaust to prevent it from happening again. I feel it is my responsibility to carry on the stories of the past. I think the project helps to connect people in different hemispheres in discussing a common topic. Using the computer, I enjoy conversing with people who have similar or different viewpoints from mine. Whether it is a disagreement or just an assertion of our agreement, this project is still a mechanism to bond with other students my own age, while accomplishing something of great significance. Perhaps, in some small way, this bond will be the tie that keeps younger generations from turning on each other in the future."

"The Holocaust/Genocide Project served as an eye-opener for me. I knew that things were bad in the world, but I never knew quite how horrible they really were. Through my work on the HGP, I not only learned about the Holocaust and Rwanda, but I learned that even at my high school, I could made a difference."

Kevin Johnson

"The Holocaust/Genocide Project is truly an international effort to increase tolerance. I was given the opportunity to write to schools in Spain and Argentina and receive their feedback. Now the CPEM school in Argentina is reading a Holocaust survivor's book in Spanish, Inge Auerbacher's, I Am a Star. They have written to me about their project, and I am now writing the responses to questions I have sent them. Not only have I been given the chance to communicate in Spanish, and make new friends, but I also have increased my understanding of the Holocaust's tragedy."
