Students preparing for museum visit

The word Holocaust, of Greek origin, means ‘sacrifice by fire’

That started as a lesson taught by Hayesville Middle School Social Studies teacher Heather Roper during a five-week enrichment course for some middle school students and their parents. In addition, literature received by the students and parents defined the Holocaust, “The systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.” 

The voluntary educational session held at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26, was the second of five-week series offered to HMS Jr. Beta Club members. The group will travel to Washington, D.C. in several weeks. While the school’s Jr. Beta group has made the D.C. trip regularly for many years, this will be the first time students may visit the United Stated Holocaust Memorial Museum.
