Participants will explore the voices of young people during the Holocaust – what factors contributed to their identity, what choices they made, and what students today can learn by studying the Holocaust with an eye towards better understanding ordinary people and human behavior. Using Facing History and Ourselves curriculum and unique exhibits of the Museum of Tolerance, including its newest one on Anne Frank, the program also features the opportunity to meet and hear a Holocaust survivor. Everyone walks away with new insights, tools and valuable classroom resources.
