I'm Still Here: Real Diaries of Young People During the Holocaust (Salvaged Pages) Study Guide

During the Holocaust, a handful of young people chose to write and record in diaries throughout Europe. The documentary film developed by MTV, I'm Still Here: Real Diaries of Young People Who Lived During the Holocaust, weaves together excerpts of young writers' diaries covering the years 1937 - 1944 and is based on the book Salvaged Pages: Young Writers' Diaries of the Holocaust, by Alexandra Zapruder.

The companion study guide helps educators use the voices of these young writers from the film and the book as a springboard for discussion and reflection on the value of these diaries as historical sources and literary records. It also provides an avenue for discussing the power of our words to make a difference in the world.
