Little Hitler

Alyssa Biswell, a Ridgewood Elementary School sixth-grader, portrays Adolf Hitler during a student-organized wax museum Thursday morning at the school. Students put on the event after studying historical figures from the early 20th century. Alyssa chose the Nazi leader after the class read a book about the Holocaust. Alyssa is reading her prepared biography of Hitler to fifth-grader Elisha Simmons. In the background in the hat is Jaime Lauver as notorious Chicago gangster Al Capone.
