Teaching Tolerance through Literature

Taking advantage of a range of opportunities offered by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the D.C. Creative Writing Workshop has developed a six-week unit of Holocaust studies that involves 100 students from Hart and Ballou each year. Throughout this period of study, the students work on their own creative responses to the moral and ethical issues raised, which they then compile into a special issue of hArtworks, “Reflections on the Holocaust.”
