Last Friday, my husband took our oldest son Bennett to the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, MI. The museum is well known throughout Michigan as the first freestanding museum dedicated to the memory of the Holocaust, and houses an array of exhibits to shed light on horrors that the Nazis and their allies brought upon Europe in the 1930s and 1940s. At the museum, They saw pictures, videos, and exhibits that gave them a deeper understanding of the Holocaust.
Earlier in the school year Bennett read the book "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl ". I thought this field trip would give him more information and view points of the holocaust.
