On Tolerance for Kids, you will find a lot of things to do, read, and learn.  Learning important lessons can be fun, too!  Please ask your parent or teacher to help you.  This web site is all about the importance of TOLERANCE and CULTURAL DIVERSITY.

The children of the Holocaust that you will meet on this site will show you some things YOU can do right in your own neighborhood, and in your school, to make the world a better place.  There are fun activities you can do that will help you learn about tolerance and the dangers of hate.

In this web site, you will get to know some very special people to help you learn along the way.

You will meet Miep Gies, a courageous woman who risked her life to hide Anne Frank and other Jews during the Holocaust.  You will also meet Nesse Godin, a woman who survived the Nazi concentration camps as a child and lived to tell her story.

This web site will show you how kids can make a difference in the world!

Children are the most important people in the world.  It is vital that they learn early about tolerance and the dangers of hate, racism, and prejudice.  One way to teach these things is to provide kids with basic introductory information about cultural diversity, civil rights, and the Holocaust.

This interactive web site is designed for use in a classroom or with parental assistance.  It is appropriate for ages 8 and up.  This site focuses on the events of the Holocaust because it is one of the most extreme and well-documented examples of hatred and intolerance.  The site will be updated periodically to teach children valuable insights about Holocaust awareness and diversity training.

Until now, the subjects of tolerance, diversity, civil rights, and the Holocaust have only been taught to middle or high school students and adults.  However, the younger generations deserve to know more about these important topics, too.

Kids are using computers more and more every year, and they also have different kinds of pressures that previous generations never did.  This web site is dedicated to showing kids how they can stop the hate and make a difference in our world.
