HOLOCAUST MUSEUM RETURNS TO SCHOOL

The halls of the Community School of Davidson were flush with excited sixth-graders May 20 as they decided where to hang photos of survivors, covered lockers to look like crematoriums and painted displays. For the seventh year, the charter school at 565 Griffith St., is being converted into a museum to teach students – and the public – about the 6 million people, predominantly of the Jewish faith, killed during the Holocaust.

The public is invited to tour the museum 4-6 p.m. May 30 and 1-4 p.m. June 2. Though all are welcome to attend, the event is recommended for children older than sixth grade because of the content.

“Every year I’ve been here, we’ve had this museum and every year it’s gotten better,” said sixth-grader Emerson Houser. “We want to make sure this never happens again. Just because we are capable of these things, it shouldn’t happen.”
