Excerpt from Article

Teaching about the Holocaust brings up complicated questions. How can man be so inhumane to his fellow man? On the flip side, what kind of person puts her own life in danger to save someone else's?

Sandi Robertson and Eugene Fedoseyev studied these ideas this summer during two workshops on the Holocaust and will share what they learned with the students in the Russian I class at the Academy for Science and Foreign Language.

They will team-teach the class as the students read "The Endless Steppe," "a book about a darling Jewish girl about your age who wakes up to find Stalin has sent her family to Siberia," Robertson said to the seventh-graders in Fedoseyev's class.
