Product Description
One of the most powerful ways to teach about the Holocaust is to bring the voices of survivors to your students. Precisely because they portray people in the fullness of their lives and not just as victims, first-person accounts add individual voices to a collective experience and help students make meaning out of the statistics. As you teach about key historical topics, incorporating survivor testimony personalizes the history, emphasizes its impact on individuals, and highlights the diversity of individual experiences.

These materials include links to survivor testimony which illustrate key topics in Holocaust history, Guidelines for Teaching About the Holocaust, short personal biographies of Holocaust victims and survivors, writings by survivors who volunteer at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, short video essays about personal collections donated by survivors and the families of Holocaust victims, and more.
