Steve Bulpett reports for the Boston Herald (full story) that Ray Allen organized the trip.
Allen, who has been to the museum five times (students at Jewish day schools who see trips to the museum as boring and depressing can learn from this), said, “So many times we get caught up in our everyday lives and what’s going on around us, and that was an opportunity for us to see something that I think is about the human condition.”
Coach Doc Rivers chimed in that he knew the Holocaust was bad but didn’t realize it was six million Jews who had been killed.
What a great example of athletes also being role models for the community.
