The Diary of Anne Frank

We had an opportunity to see a performance of The Diary of Anne Frank with some of our friends.  I guess we moms are never content to let an event stand alone because we brainstormed what else we could do to tie in with the play.

My friend Angela suggested the kids each research a holocaust survivor and give a presentation on them, either by creating a scrapbook page or gathering momentos that would tie in with telling us the story of the person they chose.

Julianne decided, of course, to scrapbook.

She  chose Solomon Radasky to report on. 

Allison, who is not as fond of scrapbooking as Julianne, wanted to go the momento route but ultimately decided the scrapbook idea was simpler to pull together.

She chose Eva Galler for her report.  She was able to include the little armband she had fashioned as a momento in her scrapbook spread.

The play was very well done and the kids did a great job on their presentations, too .  It was easy to see God's hand in several of the situations the kids learned about as they researched.  I loved Angela's idea because we learned about regular people and how they lived through the holocaust.
