What follows is from a correspondence i received.
On the CORRESPONDENCE page you will find additional correspondence sent to me. ................
I appreciated our conversation and your efforts to teach about the evils of the Nazis and Hitler. Following is the statement I will send to the teachers in response to your work. Please let me know if this captures our discussion.
“To Holocaust/Genocide Educators – I recently became aware of some very interesting artwork completed by Rodney Vanworth. The over four hundred pictures all present the concept of Nazi deception in various ways such as words, action, concepts, ideas, etc. Even the title of his work Nazi Clowns is a deception. I suggest you review the material to see of its potential in the classroom. His web site is www.naziclowns.com and Rodney would appreciate any comments. His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.”
