    Is what I call rated PG which is fine for an introduction into the Holocaust.  My daughter was assigned the Anne Frank's works in elementary school for aged 9.  She's intimately aware of our history so she was asked by her school to offer her perspective.  My research is widely shared, most notably as part of NYC's museum of tolerance.  There was also an American contingency that went 3 years ago to Poland and Russia to interview locals regarding those new camps mentioned earlier.  We finished our pilgrimage at Babi Yar.  I'm new here at Daily Kos and feel empowered by by my anonymity.  I'm not quite sure I'm ready to forfeit that at this time.

      since last summer, and to, in some way, incorporate my learning into my work with kids and teens who have experienced trauma, since those are the kinds of kids who come to our agency. I'm working on developing a specialization and when I think about what really interests me, holds my attention, it is the survivor aspect, and of course, those suffering with PTSD or even milder trauma responses benefit from building the belief that there is hope. So, when I read that  you have been documenting history, I about leaped out of my chair. Of course, remaining anonymous is what we do here at DK. Welcome and thanks for sharing. I hope to read more either in New Day or if you decide to post a diary.

      comments and hope you can share lots of your research. I remember having seen video clips of groups who went to visit the villages and camps in Eastern Europe. It was hard to watch how difficult it was for the visitors to those places to grasp what was hidden in those places history and basically see the grass that has swallowed the atrocities and pains of their generations before them.

      May be you can find a way to link to information you would like to make us aware of without needing to give up your anonymity.
