Known as the most widespread and deadliest war in history, Tortolita Middle School 8th grade students explored the history of World War II during a special social studies class event on March 14, 2019. Students rotated through stations and meet with historians, veterans, survivors, and enthusiasts who presented artifacts and restored military vehicles, as well as heard first-hand accounts about the war from World War II and Korean War.

 

To further interpret the history of the Second World War and the invasion of England, students heard from Holocaust survivors Marie Turim and Wanda Woloski, historians, as well as additional speakers.
