Teachers and students in the Athens Area School District in Pennsylvania collected objects contributed by local veterans and historians to create a World War II and Holocaust display in the high-school lobby. History teacher Amy Cheresnowsky said assistance for the display arrived in the form of the Clara H. Isaacman Memorial Trunk, which includes books, videos and other materials about the Holocaust and is named for a teacher who was a Holocaust survivor. Cheresnowsky said that over winter break her students will start reading books from the trunk, which was obtained with the help of the Pennsylvania Holocaust Education Council.
