2001-MAY-9: Tennessee: Youths create Holocaust memorial: According to ReligionToday: 4
Students at a small middle school in Tennessee, with an overwhelming white and Christian student body, studied the Nazi holocaust. They had heard that many Norwegians expressed solidarity with Jews during World War II when their country was occupied, by pinning paper clips to their lapels. The students decided to collect six million paper clips: each one representing a life exterminated by the Nazis. They will house the collection in a 1940 era German railroad car. They are about halfway to their goal of six million.

2001-MAY-27: Poland: Bishops apologize for massacre of Jews: According to Associated Press:
About 100 bishops led by Cardinal Jozef Glemp, participated in an unprecedented ceremony in which they apologized for past Roman-Catholic treatment of Jews. They apologized both for a massacre of as many as 1,600 Jews by Roman Catholics during World War II, and for other wrongs committed by Catholics on their fellow citizens who were Jews. The mass crime against humanity occurred during 1941-JUL in Jedwabne, a town in north-eastern Poland. For many years, it was believed that the slaughter was done by Nazis. The truth has only recently been determined. About 2,500 people attended the service. Rabbi Michael Schudrich, the leader of Poland's Jewish community said that the ceremony had "the potential to be one more very important step" in reconciliation between Polish Catholics and Jews. Unfortunately, he was unable to attend the ceremony, because it was held during the Jewish holy day Shavout
