Today begins day one of our new unit called, "Crimes Against Humanity." This unit will be informational and historical. The main crime against humanity that everyone should be familiar with is The Holocaust which occurred from 1941-1945. This was a genocide orchestrated by Adolf Hitler which targeted people of the Jewish religion in an attempt to wipe them from the face of the Earth. Unfortunately, this was not the first or last genocide which has occurred throughout history. Luckily, there were a few survivors of this tragedy that were willing to share their stories with the world. We are so lucky to be able to have first hand accounts of this tragedy available to us. Today, I would like you to use some time to research The Holocaust and refresh yourself about what happened and why it happened. Then, I would like you to look up a survivor of The Holocaust and read his/her story. Please comment back with with the survivor's name and a summary of their story.
Remember: You will not receive credit for comments that do not adhere to the C.U.P.S. rules or that are off topic. My suggestion to you is to type it out in MS word and have a neighbor check for mistakes before you send them to me.
I'm looking forward to this awesome new unit!
