In 2008 the English teachers and the students of Mt. Hebron began a project of magnificent proportions. During our 9th graders’ study of the Holocaust, we talk about the six million Jewish people who were killed. Six million is a number that is larger than most of us can even imagine, but we need to know how large it is so that we understand just how tragic the Holocaust was. In order to grasp the enormity, we began an effort to collect six million used postage stamps. As the stamps are collected, our National Art Honor Society uses them to create a collages that depict tolerance among all people. These art installations are displayed in a prominent areas of our school. Although we have reached our goal and are no longer actively seeking stamps, we will happily receive any that have already been collected. Pease either drop them off to our front office during school hours or send your collection of postage stamps to:
Mt. Hebron High School 9440 Old Frederick Road Ellicott City, MD 21042
Click here to see a sampling of the art installations throughout our school that students have created with some of the stamps.
Thank you for your support of our project.
