"Eliminate racism using compassion & understanding."
Raj, high school participant at Holocaust Education Symposium 2003
"I felt very upset and angry that there are still racists in the world. I was brought up to be tolerant of other people's differences. I find it hard to understand racism. It makes me very mad. The meaning of this is for all of us to respect and treat other races as or equal. No one is lower than anyone else. We should all work together and form a better world where there are co-operation and tolerance and no racism." Kenneth C (written when in Gr 8)
