Thank you for everything that you told me about the Holocaust. I feel like this is a life learning lesson for all people and all races and for the people who were bystanders and that didn't do anything about it when they first saw the unfair treatment, I hope we never let another group get treated like this again. I would also like to give a thank you to the tour guides who are Jewish and had family and friends who survived. The art and stories were an eye opener for me to show that anything could happen if you're not paying attention. All in all, I appreciate your time and thank you for having us.

My time at the Holocaust Museum was great! I had so many questions to ask about the Holocaust. We got to watch a video and we saw the art and statue of the hand. People were crawling up the hand struggling to find their children. The hand signified to me the struggle for freedom. I have learned so much and now I understand the Diary of Anne Frank better because Anne lost all of her friend and family and memories when she went into hiding and she didn't even know what has happening and she thought it was unfair but she didn't even know what was happening outside the annex until she was caught. Then, just that quick her entire family was wiped out and they last longer than most people. It really showed me that Anne was lucky because everyone couldn't go into hiding like she did. Most were rounded up early and it was clear that their lives were over. All in all, thank you to the Memorial for helping me to make this connection I will never forget it.

I want to thank Ms. Bryant, my teacher and our tour guide. I don't know his name but he was very nice with blue eyes and also Jewish. What I am thanking them for is for me being able to go out to the Memorial and actually see what people had to go through. I thought the Holocaust was bad from class and I thought people had to struggle today but what I thought really doesn't compare to what really happened in the Holocaust. Thank you for this opportunity.

When reading about the Holocaust in class, I felt for the situation. I felt like I was impacted. I felt sorry. But from the art and creativity I saw today at the Holocaust Memorial, and actually seeing their expressions. I felt like I was one of them crying for my life. Begging for the Nazis to stop. This visit was very saddening for me. I would never wish this upon someone. Thank you for your time.

The Holocaust Memorial is a reminder of what happened in the past when Hitler was killing because of Hitler's ideology. The art and quotes at the museum portrayed what happened and made us emotional. I understand now how terrible the Holocaust was.

I had no idea that we had a Holocaust Memorial and I had never been to South Beach. But Ms. Bryant said that is could be symbolic. We learned in class in a story we read that people tried to make beauty in a dark situation and I think that is what happened there. I am going to tell everyone about the Memorial and I am able to understand what we read in class now. Thank you for the tour.
