Do you have a used copy of The Diary of Anne Frank laying around?
The Dallas Holocaust Museum is collecting books.
The Dallas Holocaust Museum wants your used copies of The Diary of Anne Frank, a book used for teaching the Holocaust. The museum is collecting and handing out the books to Dallas students, in hopes that "every student in the Dallas-Fort Worth who wishes to read The Diary of Anne Frank" can.
The books will be given to students 13 and older and are being collected now through the end of 2012.
The museum explains the importance of the book:
"The Diary is an honest, intimate portrayal of a unique individual in an extremely difficult and dangerous time in history. Anne Frank shows that no matter what is occurring in the world around us, we as humans share many of the same qualities — emotion, passion, love, desire, hope, fear, and strength. Not only does the story educate us about an important historical event, but it reminds us of the importance of learning to accept our differences and embrace diversity."
