By Susan Bush – June 07, 2006

Clarksburg Elementary School eighth grade students will host a Holocaust exhibit on June 15.
Clarksburg – Clarksburg Elementary School teacher Michael Little delivered heartfelt praise to his eighth grade students.

“My students have worked incredibly hard,” Little said during a June 6 interview. “They have dug deep and worked harder than I ever expected.”

Holocaust Exhibit

The students have focused on the Holocaust over the past five weeks; their work involves creating a temporary museum featuring about 250 Holocaust artifacts that will be open to the public for a one-night only June 15 event.

The event is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the school. Exhibits will be set up at the school gymnasium and speakers, including Lodz Ghetto survivor George Torrey and the Hativah Holocaust Education Center Director Rabbi Robert Sternberg, will be situated in classrooms.
