Words from our young visitors

This is an example of magnet poetry crafted by one of the Museum

I feel so inspired by what I saw here and I feel very blessed to learn about the Holocaust and Anne Frank. We can all understand that Jews were treated horrible in a very harsh way along with other religious groups and races as well. Anne Frank said in her diary, “In spite of everything I still believe people are good at heart.” I believe that as well, as Anne does. Thank you, Dallas Holocaust Museum. I have learned so much.

Love, Dara F.

Nothing I write can describe what I feel. There is no way I could manage words that even come close to all of the horror and despair these children of earth felt when they entered hell. We can’t go back in time and change what happened but we can prevent it from happening again.

Dear Anne,

I am one of your new and dearest friends… I read your diary and you think you are all alone…you are my best friend.

Anne Frank you are such an inspiration. As I read your journal, I thought, “What if I was in her spot? What would I do?” It’s really hard to imagine. I’m sorry for all who have died during the Holocaust.

I would take your place in a heartbeat.

Dear Anne,

Even though you are not here anymore, I want you to know how big of an inspiration [you are] to us kids. When I started reading your diary (I hope you don’t mind my reading it)... but it inspired me, too. Thank you so much.
