Students Collect Stamps in Remembrance of Holocaust Victims

Baltimore's ABC's Channel 2 reports an Ellicott City, Maryland  English teacher has her students collecting stamps in remberance of Holocaust victims.

According to the report, "Cyndie Fagan's class was reading the book, "Night" which tells the story of a father and son in a Nazi concentration camp. To drive home the point that six million people died, Fagan has the class collecting stamps for each of the victims. So far, the students have collected more than 347,000. There's still a long way to go, and at that rate it's estimated that it could take 26 years to collect six million stamps."
