Seeing my teacher (Mr Joe Webster) the most inspirational person I know break down and cry, along with many of my peers was a life changing experience like coming to Count Me In.

In this story, it states “She fell dead upon the spot…”.

Anne Frank was a girl who was hiding from the Germans during the Holocaust. After two years of hiding, she was killed and we know what her life was like because we have her diary. Genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. The Holocaust was the killing of people with Jewish heritage by the Germans. After being exposed to multiple perspectives my understanding of genocide has changed because, I now know that there are more than one cause of genocide, how the support of other countries and their leaders have affected the victims of genocide, and how some stories can help you understand how it was like living during genocide.
