Maya's Exhibition

A report from Saul, who attended Maya's Exhibition on Holocaust survivors.

Maya’s exhibition was about the Holocaust. She interviewed a survivor of the Holocaust, Irene Butter, and showed us a video of the interview. She also showed us some pictures from her visit to the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, including a uniform from one of the concentration camps, a painting depicting Nazis burning newspapers, and many other artifacts from the Holocaust. She also shared a passage from Night by Elie Weisel, another survivor, describing a scene at one of the camps. She asked us to imagine that we were the only survivor of that scene, and to write about our emotions. It was a very interesting lesson, and I think that Maya did a great job.
