“Four Stories of Hiding and Rescue: Children’s Testimonies of the Holocaust” – Video with instructor

The encounter with the story of a survivor’s childhood transforms the testimony into an absorbing historical document.

The dynamic qualities of the video medium enhance the didactic value of the presentation: the individual presentation, tones of voice, and facial expressions, elevate the level of involvement and identification on the part of the young listener.

The personal viewpoint of children growing up in the shadow of the war, sheds light on that period from new angles. This creates a sense of presence and closeness for the children, which can then extend to their listening to the childhood memories of their parents and grandparents. 

The survivor-witnesses’ stories reveal the strength of will, powers of endurance, and the quick-wittedness of children during the Holocaust in facing the forces of destruction that threatened them with annihilation.

The young listeners’ encounters with the memories of other children their age, may open a window to a personal identification, broadening knowledge of the events of the Holocaust, and converting individual stories to become part of the collective memory of future generations. 

 

  The package includes:

·         Videotape cassette of four testimonies (approx. 7 minutes each a printed

·         Instructor’s Guide (in Hebrew or English)

 

 The guide presents suggestions for activities in preparation for Holocaust Remembrance Day, based on the encounter with the testimonies.
