For the last two days we were honored as part of a STEM Schools final showcase. 7th and 8th graders learned about the Holocaust. The kids focused on all aspects of the Holocaust that affected 11.5 million people, six million where Jews, and 1.2 million where children. The theme, Our Holocaust Museum, and the children created some amazing showcases.

Music

The upper class wrote a song in honor of Holocaust Survivors, powerful. Nathan wrote the song, the music, and he copyrighted the song; four individuals including Nathan sing the song.

Virtual

The tech aspect of the Holocaust museum was phenomenal. The kids built a virtual museum using various types software like Blender it’s awesome.

In 2008, I personally started using Second Life, a virtual world, and created Holocaust presentations with Fanny. Fanny has her own avatar.

Science

The science students learned about eugenics, and how Dr. Josef Mengele distorted the studies by using twins in Auschwitz.

Questions

The kids and teachers immersed themselves into knowing about the Holocaust.

“Fanny, how old where you?”
“I was 13, the same age as many of you.”

“Fanny, what gave you the will to survive?
“I don’t know how I survived, I was a walking zombie.”

"If you could change one thing that happened to you, what would you change?"
"I'd stand-up and fight evil, and encourage others to fight back against hate." 

We need more children learning and caring about humanity, and the effects of what the Nazi ego did to humanity. The Nazi ego caused WWII, created hate, fear, propaganda, and murder millions.

“The Yimakh Shemo Hitler, did not succeed, he lost the war, and committed suicide, I survived.” (Fanny, 2017).

To all my teachers, I thank you for helping me develop, grow, and helping me overcome many fears. Everyday I learn something new, and I think about the teachers who never gave up on me, Thank you…

Teachers help us develop from a toddler to adults. Teachers help us read, write, and develop critical thinking. Teachers also help with our emotional quotients. Teachers are amazing and we need to stand up for the teachers and their rights.

To all the teachers, you do an amazing job everyday, thank you.

Holocaust

letters   hrs© 04/15/2017


My name is Fanny Starr, and I am a Holocaust survivor, and I am disturbed to hear how old hatred towards humanity is resurfacing. Seventy-two years ago today, April 15, 1945, the British liberated me from Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp.  I know what’s it like to be torn apart from my parents, and to live in constant fear.

Our Holocaust work is encountering different people from all walks of life, and amongst them are Dream Act Kids, These kids fear their families will be torn apart. The Deportation Act created by extreme hatred in America is horrifying. ICE agents can come to anyone’s home, and do what is called an “expedited removal” with no hearings necessary. The act has lead to sanctuary cities for the illegal immigrants who’ve resided in the US for many years.

One teacher from Boulder, CO who contacted us is teaching her students about PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). The teacher shared a story of an immigrant’s child.

The story of a little girl from immigrants, enrolled at a middle school in Boulder, CO.

“Teacher, I think I have PTSD?”

“Why do you say you have “PTSD?”

“Every time the doorbell rings, my little brother and I hide in a closet.”

“Why do you hide in the closet?

“So the ICE agents won’t take us away.”

Children are hiding, teenagers are hiding, and humans are hiding.

The stories leave an impact on our hearts. The letters we receive are powerful, and we need to listen to their voices. We strive to inspire kindness towards each other in a world torn apart by hate.

We can Never Forget that extreme hate killed 6 million Jews because of one man’s ego.
