LINDEN — McManus and Soehl Middle School students from Celena Spencer’s and Edith  Duckett’s English as a second language classes  had the opportunity to  take a trip to Washington D.C. to visit the United  States  Holocaust Memorial  Museum. Students had been covering themes such as  “Conflict”, “Meeting Challenges”,  “Points of View” and “The Human Spirit,” which included learning on the Holocaust. Duckett’s  students, along with Michael D’Amato’s  Honors History students, also had  a follow up trip to the College  of Saint Elizabeth to hear the story  of a survivor of the Rwanda genocide  where students were challenged to learn  from the lessons and  mistakes of the past in order to have a lasting social impact and act collectively in the  face of similar issues and challenges which  still exist  today.
