Clarksburg Elementary eighth-graders will host the school's 13th annual Holocaust Exhibit featuring Auschwitz survivor Magda Brown on Monday night.
English teacher and exhibit organizer Michael Little said the exhibit this year will focus on anti-Jewish legislation in Nazi Germany.
Clarksburg School's Holocaust Studies program has in the past explored the roots of genocide, discrimination and prejudice, the failure of political will to protect individual rights, and the rise of Nazism.
With the theme "Rescue and Remembrance," the 15 students told the stories of the saviors, including Miep Gies, Raoul Wallenberg, and Chiune Sugihara, who had risked their lives and careers to help Jews escape Nazi Germany's "Final Solution."
Clarksburg Elementary School's eighth grade is inviting the community to the annual Holocaust Exhibit on Thursday evening from 6 to 9.
Teacher Michael Little said this year's exhibit will mark 11 years for the Grade 8 Holocaust study program and, although the exhibit has shifted and grown from its roots, the message still remains the same.
