Student Emails Via Their L.A.Teacher Ms.Helen Needle
Woodrow Wilson #19 Language Arts Literacy 6th Grade
Subject: Thank You Vaudsen- Grade 6- 108
Dear Dr. Cohn, Thank you for the presentation that you showed us on
Friday June 9. I learned some new things I did not know about the Holocaust.
It’s always nice to learn facts about new stuff that you did not know a lot
about. Any way I have a question. What made you want to study the Holocaust? Just one day just felt like it, or you always just wanted to study about the holocaust because your family was there at the time. One more question. At what age did you start to study the holocaust? Yours truly, Vaudsen
Subject: Re: thank- you Vaudsen
I began studying the Holocaust as an adult when I discovered a photograph of
people I did not recognize after my Grandma Bella died. It lead me to discover
my murdered family in Dubno. Thanks for your question.
PS: Dr.Cohn, Vauden was so happy that you took the time to answer his question…..Thank you again for making his day. Ms.Needle

Dear Dr. Cohn, Thank you for coming to school # 19 on Friday June 9, and to
teach me more about the Holocaust. It was a pleasure to meet someone as good as
you. What I learned about Holocaust is that many people died and some of your
relatives died there too. I treat people better since I learned how people
treated people in the Holocaust, I have always been a humble person, I like to
help people. The teaching that will be always with me is that it doesn’t
matter difference of color, culture none of that matters because in the
world we are all the same. I’m a bilingual student, and I’m proud to be
different. Gracias Dr.cohn por haber venido a la escuela #19 el Viernes
june 9, y enseñarme mas cosas sobre el Holocaust. Fue un placer conozer a
laguien tan buena como tu, Lo que yo aprendi sobre Holocaust es que muchas
personas murieron y que algunos familiares tuyos que tambien murieron. Yo
treat personas mejor ya que aprendi how people trataban a las personas en
el Holocaust, yo siempre e sido una persona Humilde, a mi me gusta ayudar a las
personas. la enseñanza que me llebo con todo lo que usted es que no
importa la diferencia de color, cultura nada de eso importa porque ene el mundo
todos somos iguales. sincerely, Isabella
