portance to all children. "We
never know when dormant seeds
will bloom. We must never be
complacent or hopeless about the
possibilities of erasing prejudice."

Although Dolls for Democracy
was developed for an elementary
school age audience, Poger and
Cooper will shape the program for
any age group. All presentations
are free although donations to
B'nai B'rith Women are accepted.
Too book a presentation, call

Holocaust
Memorial
Center

The Holocaust Memorial Cen-
ter (HMC) will offer teachers and
students in seventh through 12th
grade a variety of experiences and
materials.

Primarily, the HMC will offer
guided tours Sunday through
Thursday, 10-4 and Wednesday,
10-8. School groups will generally
be booked for morning tours. Each
tour will last approximately 50
minutes, ending with a question-
answer session.
Judy Ehrman, co-chairman of

the HMC education committee,
emphasizes that "although the
tour is self-guided, tour guides go
with school groups to answer
questions along the way."
The tour includes many audio-
visual features designed to inter-
est and involve students. Three
large screens create a composite of
the experiences of several Detroit
area survivors. As the middle sc-
reen plays a video of a survivor's
speech, the left and right screen
dramatically illustrate his ex-
periences with slides of the time.
There are also videos and
three-dimensional sculptures of
Jewish and Gentile life before the
war.
