Palm Beach Central Students Take Part In Unique Holocaust Lesson

Students exit the cattle car after the program.

In partnership with JSU and Shadowlight, Palm Beach Central High School is the first high school in the country to take part in the virtually immersive history lesson “Shadowlight: The Cattle Car – Stepping In and Out of Darkness” that through the lens of the Holocaust provides the context of consequences of hatred and how as future leaders, students are positioned to make a difference in the world. It is an extension of the Holocaust studies program at Palm Beach Central, which is designed to teach students to always be an upstander and advocate in the face of prejudice and discrimination. The Shadowlight exhibit, as well as other exhibits produced by Palm Beach Central students, were on display during the first week in December.
