The Holocaust Studies students of Thomas Jefferson High School invited their peers, faculty, parents and community to visit their student-created Holocaust Museum on Wednesday, May 1. The museum commemorated Yom Ha-Sho’ah, the Holocaust Remembrance Day which was celebrated in the beginning weeks of April.
Students who took the semester-long Research Methods: Holocaust Studies class, created their final projects to be displayed as part of a museum. The class chose to display their projects in this type of exhibit to allow visitors a general overview of the holocaust.
The Holocaust Studies class is an attempt to reduce prejudice, intolerance, and anti-Semitism through an in depth study of the holocaust and contemporary genocides.
