CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Every year, Clarksburg Elementary School's eighth-graders study the Holocaust and create an historical exhibit under the direction of teacher Michael Little, historian and collector Darrell K. English and Rabbi Robert Sternberg.

This year's "Never Forget Holocaust Exhibit" features more than 125 artifacts from the Holocaust and World War II, plus Holocaust survivor Max Glauben sharing personal testimony about surviving Majdanek and four other concentration camps, the Warsaw ghetto and a death march.

The event will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 21, at Clarksburg Elementary School, 777 West Cross Road.

Glauben, who now lives in the Dallas, Texas, area, is from Warsaw, Poland. According to the Dallas Holocaust Museum's website, his family’s apartment overlooked a square that saw early fighting in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. He lost all of his family except for his father, with whom Max was sent to forced labor camps and salt mines. His father did not survive, and Max came to the United States in 1946 as an orphan.

The annual Clarksburg exhibit is the culmination of several months of study that includes a trip to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., funded largely through the generosity of Stockbridge residents Robert and Elaine Baum.

Admission is free.
