Using Film to Explore the Holocaust: Teaching Schindler’s List

How can we apply the lessons of the film Schindler’s List toward standing up to hatred in our own communities? How do you engage students in conversations around racism, antisemitism, and other forms of hatred? 

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Schindler’s List, Universal Pictures is re-releasing the film for a limited theatrical engagement. Using this film in a classroom is an opportunity to help students raise questions about racism, antisemitism and other forms of exclusion in today’s political climate. In partnership with Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center, explore these themes through a docent led museum tour and interaction with artifacts pertaining to those saved on Schindler's List

In this workshop, teachers will:

  • Explore a Facing History approach with film to develop students’ literacy skills; promote historical analysis and understanding of some of the darkest moments in history; and foster empathy, perspective-taking
  • Engage with teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully
  • Explore the historical context of Schindler’s List 
  • Tour the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center's state-of-the-art museum
  • Interact with rare artifacts related to Schindler's List 

This workshop fee is $25 payable via check to the Holocaust Memorial Tolerance Center on the day of the workshop.
