On November 16, 2006, Lakeview High School students in both World at War classes participated in an interactive Internet2 (I2) video conference featuring Gerda Weissmann Klein. The video conference originated from MAGPI at the University of Pennsylvania and involved some 30 sites from around the world. Lakeview was proud to have been selected to ask a question of Gerda Klein during the conference.

Are there lessons from the Holocaust that can help us confront issues that face us today (i.e., Iraq, Afghanistan, Darfur, Hurricane Katrina)?

All school groups have now been challenged to engage in a community service project and to report back to other conference participants in a follow-up video conference scheduled for January 17, 2007.
