Ms. Jones, eighth grade language arts teacher, suggested this tie in since one of the reading topics for eighth grade is "The Diary of Anne Frank".
The Oconee County Library will host the traveling exhibit "Anne Frank: A History for Today" from Sunday through March 14.The exhibit, sponsored by the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust, features 17 panels of photographs and text that chronicle the Holocaust through the eyes of Anne Frank and her family, showing the effects of National Socialism on the lives of a typical Jewish family.Photographs include family pictures and text includes entries from her famous diary. Accompanying the main exhibit are the smaller exhibits of "The Anne Frank Secret Hiding Place" and "Witness to the Holocaust: World War II Veteran William A Scott III at the Liberation of Buchenwald Concentration Camp." There will also be a couple related films.
For more information about the programs, call Alice Rossiter at (706) 769-3950.
