A dozen Hamilton High School students and two advisors from Club Action and RAY Club attended an exhibit Saturday, Nov. 8 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus that depicted Nazi persecution of individuals from 1933 to 1945. Some 250 reproductions of photographs, documents and artwork comprise the exhibit that examines the rationale, means and impact of the Nazi regime’s attempt to eradicate homosexuality in Germany.
“It’s hard to believe that human beings could treat others the way they did,” one student said in reaction to the exhibit.
In addition to viewing the exhibit, students visited the Dane County farmer’s market on the Capitol Square. All vendors are local to Madison and many use sustainable or organic agricultural practices.
RAY Club believes that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity and feel safe. Club Action is focused on raising awareness of issues that are important to its members such as human rights violations, animal rights issues and environmental concerns.
