7th graders at Eugene school contribute to Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
EUGENE, Ore. - 7th Graders at a Eugene parish school are lifting the curtains of history.
They are searching for articles related to the holocaust during the 1930s that may not have made it into headlines.
It is a part of a nationwide project called "History Unfolded."
The technology class at Saint Paul's Parish School has more than 30 students.
They are all searching online for old Oregon newspaper articles that could have been related to the Holocaust.
Each student will send their findings to the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
One 7th grader explained why the search for the articles is important for their education.
"So that history won't be repeated," 7th grader of Saint Paul's Parish School, Jillian Thompson said. "Cause who would want that repeated? It was so bad and no one wants to go through that again."
Their teacher said she will be submitting their findings to the museum as early as next week.
