I touch upon Holocaust when discussing Memorial Day. The above poem I share with my class for that day. I then discuss the 12 wars our country has been involved in and the more than 1 million who have given their lives over the years since the Revolution. I talk briefly about Hitler and the millions of Jews who perished when discussing WWII. The magnitude of their loss can not be put into terms understandable by 9 year olds. However, as an adult I fully comprehend and pray for their souls. May it be a part of history that never is repeated.
