Teachers and Students:
This unit honors the lives and legacies of those who survived the extreme hardships and unspeakable cruelty of this epoch of darkness. Survivors such as Elie Wiesel continue to bear witness to the sanctity of each life sacrificed to the deadly design of the Holocaust. They speak for those who can no longer speak, and they speak to new generation as guardians of the Holocaust.

"These children—these innocent little children—were deprived of everything: their lives and even a burial place. And, so, hush, little children, one million of you, hush, come: we invite you. We invite you into our memory."
Elie Wiesel - From The Kingdom of Memory
