Students at two high schools in Hanover, N.J., used their genocide studies classes as the basis for schoolwide projects to raise awareness among peers and the public about global atrocities. Hanover Park Regional High School was converted into a "pop-up" museum, while Whippany Park High School students created a Gallery Walk with information about genocide committed during the Holocaust, in Rwanda, Armenia and other countries, including accounts from students' own families. "It's not often you see such a large group captivated by a subject. It's a powerful, positive response," said Brady Mahar, teacher at Whippany Park High School.
