The children of Danville (Iowa) schools are collecting postcards in remembrance of the 1.5 million Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust. They would like people to send cards from all around the world. Anne Frank collected postcards so she inspired the children in Iowa who just launched this outreach a week ago. It's all new!
Also, two students from Burlington (Iowa) wrote and illustrated a children's book for a collection called A BOOK by ME. It's called Oceans Apart and it tells the story of Anne having a pen pal from Danville named Juanita Wagner. The original letters Anne sent her (also letters from Margot Frank to Juanita's older sister Betty Ann and a final letter from Otto Frank letting the girls from Iowa know his wife and daughters perished in a concentration camp) are in The Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.
The details of these two Holocaust educational projects can be found on my website at www.abookbyme.com. The icon of Anne Frank at the top will take you right to a platform which explains the projects and offers advanced book sales.
Happy holidays and thank you!
