The Holocaust and the Heroes Among Us

 

 Dressed in period clothing, Dianne Moran's character transports students back to 1942 as she speaks of the unbelievable treatment of Nazi Germany's Jewish people. Several student volunteers will be dressed in period clothing as a U.S. soldier and Jewish students. Dianne will lead the volunteers and audience to join her in an improvisational scenario of how anti-Semitism could slowly cause the deaths of six million souls. Highlighted are true stories of bravery by the resistance fighters, all who gave their lives to fight against hatred and racism. A Holocaust timeline will be included and most importantly, how today's students can fight against racism with their own sense of right and wrong.
