Local teacher follows Anne Frank's footsteps

April 19, 2011

COLUMBIA CITY — Michelle Ball, a teacher at Pierceton Elementary School, retraced the footsteps of Anne Frank and her family, thanks to a Lilly Endowment Teacher Creativity Fellowship Grant that she received last year.
Ball spent 47 days in Europe last summer. She traveled throughout Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands, visiting places where Frank spent her life, and learning Jewish history dating back to the 12th century. She deepened her experiences there to further understand what makes the Holocaust such a tragic human event, as well as a distinct genocide.
