SAN DIEGO — The Children's School middle school students recently wrapped up a unit on the Holocaust, in which Holocaust survivor Dr. Eger came and spoke to the students and they visited the Holocaust museum in Washington D.C. The students are now participating in The Butterfly Project - a national project to paint one butterfly for every child who perished in the Holocaust. The butterflies the students painted will be displayed on campus, as a reminder about the dangers of hatred and bigotry.
Educator David Lyons said it is important to unpack historical moments that can be tough to tackle, because they have a profound impact on the children of today.
Ashley Jacobs stopped by the classroom to learn more about this ongoing project for the kids and also talk to them about an upcoming walk many students are participating in. The Walk Against Hate is Sunday, May 19. Students explain why they want to take part in the walk as they make signs to get ready for the event.
