We are protected against anyone discriminating or persecuting
us based on our race or religion by the first amendment to the
Constitution. Other countries have not respected the rights of
individuals. One incident of persecution that is still vivid
in the memories of many Americans is the Holocaust. While many
people were killed in many countries during World War II, the
Holocaust is one of the most poignant events.
The national organization We Remember promotes activites
that educate past, present and future generations about the Holocaust.
One of their goals is to erect a memorial to commemorate the
victims and survivors of this tragedy. They have asked our class
to make proposals on the type of memorial that should be erected.
You will prepare a proposal for a national monument to commemorate
the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. At the end of the
project, you will present your proposal to the organization's
Building and Memorial Committee.
