PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Since many students cannot visit a concentration camp today, this activity paired with a virtual field trip is the perfect way to help students understand what it feels like to visit a deserted concentration camp. The author, Dara Horn, does an excellent job of describing what her experience is like while visiting Majdanek. The memoir, "Walking with Living Feet" makes use of figurative language, and the carousel brainstorming and analysis focuses largely on how she uses figurative language to perfectly describe her feelings, response, and questions. This activity is meant to accompany a larger Holocaust unit. It should be placed at the end of a Holocaust unit to show students what a possible response might be to visiting a concentration camp. As aforementioned, a perfect paired activity would be a virtual field trip to a concentration camp.
This activity makes us of close reading and annotation, a carousel brainstorming activity, and a memoir analysis along with group discussion.
