The Holocaust was a revolutionary event in history, which lasted from 1933, when Hitler first took the place of Chancellor of Germany, to 1945, when the Americans crossed the pond and the victims were liberated. This is one of the most tragic events in European history, hundreds of thousands of innocent people died solely based on their religious beliefs or sexual orientation. My hope is that we’ll continue to show our future generations tragic events like this that happened in the past, hundreds of years from now. It’s so important to teach and remember things like the Holocaust, and the Revolutionary War, and even smaller events that weren’t even wars, such as Columbine or the Sandy Hook Massacre. We need to keep these events in our textbooks in hopes to try and prevent history repeating itself. - Abbey S.
