The learning environment presented, "Children in the Ghetto", deals with children's lives in the ghettos during the Holocaust period, and is intended for children in grades 4-6. The environment is based on guiding principles of our age-appropriate Educational Philosophy, and describes life during the Holocaust from the perspective of children living in the ghettos. This environment presents this complex experience in an interactive format, with the goal of exposing younger children to the Holocaust in a way that is suited to them and that can create a sense of empathy and awareness to the hardships and human problems of the period.
