Excerpt: COLUMBIA, S.C. (RNS) — The red-brick Georgian-style home on a tree-lined street at the heart of the University of South Carolina campus has no signs out yet. It is as anonymous, for the moment, as the red-brick Dutch townhouse where Anne Frank hid with her family from German soldiers.

Opened Wednesday (Sept. 15), on the eve of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, the house is North America’s first permanent Anne Frank Center, dedicated to studying the legacy of the German-Dutch writer whose famous diary chronicled the two years she spent hiding in a secret annex in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam.

Frank, who died of typhus fever at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the age of 15, is perhaps the Holocaust’s most beloved symbol. Now she is being memorialized in the heart of the South as part of an educational effort to stem not only hatred of Jews, but blah blah blah ...  ad nauseam :sick

Beginning this semester, some 100 sections of “University 101,” a required class for all incoming students, will tour the center. Eventually, all first-year students are expected to tour the center, led by peer guides who have been trained to discuss how society should respond to genocidal ideologies such as the one that killed 6 million people because they were Jews.

It is this peer-guided learning, developed at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, that school officials hope will take Frank’s story far beyond the university campus. They eventually plan to train middle- and high-school teachers to lead guided tours for the general gullible public.

The center is the brainchild of Doyle Stevick, associate professor of educational leadership at the University of South Carolina ... Stevick was a Ph.D. candidate in classics at Indiana University Bloomington and teaching Latin in 1999 when a photo of a student he had just failed six weeks earlier flashed on CNN.

Benjamin Nathaniel Smith was wanted for a crime spree that started with the shooting and wounding of nine Orthodox Jews in the West Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago and ended with the killing of a Black Northwestern University basketball coach and a Korean graduate student at Indiana University.

Smith, who killed himself bled to death after being shot in the thigh/femoral artery after a high-speed chase with police, was a member of the neo-Nazi Church of the Creator.

“That shook up everything I thought I knew,” said Stevick. “I had an image of a racist as a Klan member or a neo-Nazi with a shaved head. I assumed it was people seething hatred that I could spot a mile away. But I had one right under my head and I didn’t realize it.”
