Dr. Eva Olsson uses the Holocaust and her experiences in it as a springboard to discuss the following key issues:
1. The power of hate and the need to stop it wherever it occurs. She focuses on bullying in society (including Nazi Germany), which has become an especially big problem.
2. The importance of not being a bystander when bad things are happening. Evil thrives when good people stand back and let it happen. People must stand together to oppose evil.
3. The importance of having compassion and respect for self and others -It must go beyond mere tolerance. Children have to see these qualities displayed by adults in their lives, especially at home and in their schools. Children model their behaviour on the adults around them.
4. Education must go beyond the three “R’s”, and help students develop character as well.
