New learning trunks on display at Anne Frank in the World

Three trunks decorated by students of Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy are now on display at the Anne Frank in the World exhibit in Sandy Springs.

A total of six trunks, including some decorated by the Weber School, Dunwoody High School, and GIVE Center East are also on display.

The statewide Holocaust Learning Trunk Project provides trunks filled with educational materials on the Holocaust, World War II, and genocide. It is supported by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc. and the Georgia Department of Education.

Middle school teachers use these trunks to supplement their curriculum and fulfill the states Standards of Excellence. Each trunk was decorated by students in metro-Atlanta. The use of art and history unifies students across the state, connecting them through their participation in this project.

The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust and the Georgia Department of Education are working in concert to ensure the Holocaust Learning Trunk Project will cultivate positive character development and foster students understanding of the importance of good citizenship.
