World War II History Out of the Textbooks

Middle school students in Kayleen Everitt’s classes learned in-depth details about World War II and the Holocaust when Holocaust survivor Werner Reich visited on March 18.

The students, who have been studying the genocide in their ELA class, sat in awe as Mr. Reich provided his compelling account of the Holocaust. Through his words, he offered messages of tolerance and acceptance and explained that “bad things happen when good people do nothing.”

To thank Mr. Reich, the ELA students will be hosting a bake sale fundraiser, in conjunction with the National Junior Honor Society, for the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County. All proceeds will be donated in Mr. Reich’s name.
