“It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts…it is to teach them to think and always to think for themselves.”-- Robert Hutchins
The Conclusion of the Anne Frank lesson is enough is to remember the Holocaust or its survivors. Many students go to school learning nothing of the world wars nor the Holocaust. Most of the history studied usually involves memorizing dates, battles and names. There is usually no "human connection." The lesson of Anne Frank encourages students to relive the times and reflect soberly on true life issues.
