After my students finish The Diary of Anne Frank, we dig deeper into this tragic era in our world’s history. The Holocaust was the systematic persecution and killing of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime, headed by Adolf Hitler.  Coming from Greek origins, the word "Holocaust" means "sacrifice by fire.” After reading The Diary of Anne Frank, the students brainstormed key ideas that were related to the Holocaust. From there, they chose one idea to research, explore, and create a project of their choice. One such option was the technical program, Prezi. Some of the projects shown here indicate what a phenomenal job our students can accomplish when invested and interested in a topic.
