I wanted to not only search for answers to my questions about the causes and consequences of the Holocaust, but also to have time for some reflection and to write this blog as I traveled. I also wanted to be a part of the culture of each of these cities. Museum Island in Berlin and Rijks Museum and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam offer some of the most famous art collections in the world. I had to make time to see them while I was there. I was not disappointed. This trip was wonderful, challenging, empowering, educational, and worth every minute of time and energy that it took to get there. Fund for Teachers made it possible, but I made it happen by following a dream.
Now to help my students find theirs.
