I agree. It also helps children see that the Holocaust is not a Jewish
problem, that Civil Rights are not an people of color problem, but that
hatred and intolerance affect everyone in the society and limit all of us.
When we talked about the Holocaust in our Hero's exhibit. I always used the
9 million people figure (6 million Jews, 3 million Catholics, political
opposition, gays, people who were mentally ill etc). I wanted them to
understand we can all be victims if we don't stand together against the
bigots.

I find folks (students) who feel threatened by diversity.....how we are
different....can accept it better if first we explore commonality...how we
are similar. Melissa
