CLARKSBURG — Nearly 200 people learned about the Holocaust through pictures, artifacts and stories last night, during a presentation that organizers said they intend to hold annually.

The eighth-grade class at Clarksburg Elementary School, under the direction of teacher Michael Little, created “Voices of Hatikvah,” an exhibit that included museum stations explaining the Holocaust, along with speeches and discussions about the genocide that killed millions. Hatikvah means “hope” in Hebrew.
