We are protected against anyone discriminating or persecuting us based on our race or religion by the first amendment to the Constitution. Other countries have not respected the rights of individuals. One incident of persecution that is still vivid in the memories of many Americans is the Holocaust. While many people were killed in many countries during World War II, the Holocaust is one of the most poignant events.

The national organization We Remember promotes activites that educate past, present and future generations about the Holocaust. One of their goals is to erect a memorial to commemorate the victims and survivors of this tragedy. They have asked our class to make proposals on the type of memorial that should be erected.

You will prepare a proposal for a national monument to commemorate the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. At the end of the project, you will present your proposal to the organization's Building and Memorial Committee.
