Middle school students learn about the Holocaust

(WEAU) - Some La Crosse eighth graders learned about what it was like during the Holocaust.

Tim Scott was at Logan Middle School Tuesday to talk about why the Holocaust is relevant today. He says it's important to know that behaviors such as bullying, racism, and prejudice aren't jokes, and can lead to serious consequences.

Scott says one of his goals is for students take what they learned during his presentation, and apply it to everyday life. "I definitely try to bring it up to the present day so that they look into the mirror of their heart and soul and see where this kind of behavior can lead to and question their own and hopefully make some positive changes."

Scott says he also hopes students will have a greater understanding and empathy for what victims in the Holocaust went through.
