Nate Erickson lights a candle in honor of Holocaust victims.

We learned about it in elementary school, middle school, and high school. The Holocaust is covered in curriculums across the nation in the hopes it will never happen again.

Today, our Drake group went to the Holocaust Memorial Museum here in D.C. It was a sobering and saddening experience for us all and something we later processed together.

At one point in the exhibit, you round a corner and see hundreds and hundreds of leather shoes in a pit on either side of you – the shoes of concentration camp victims. This section hit home for Senior Nate Erickson.
