Crafts are an integral part in the life of an Indian, despite the rapid social and technological changes that are taking place. In the Western world, special artists create craft objects and they are considered as luxury items. But in India like many other developing countries it is the main source of employment for a vast majority of the population, next to agriculture.

    The Holocaust refers to the systematic murder of more than six million Jews coordinated by the Nazi party. This was my second visit to the Holocaust museum, and I truly appreciated it much more than my first visit. Instead of reading every single word written upon the wall at the museum, it was the visual parts of the museum that really moved me and made me ask more questions about the Holocaust.
