Schindler’s List in the Classroom

Building a Toolbox Against Hate: Schindler’s List in the Classroom

This webinar will take place on January 17th at 1-2pm EST.

Schindler’s List tells the story of Oskar Schindler, a war profiteer and member of the Nazi party who saved over 1,100 Jews during World War II. The movie explores the human capacity for monumental evil as well as for extraordinary courage, caring, and compassion. It turns history into an opportunity for moral reflection.

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 internationally for a limited theatrical engagement. Join Facing History for an interactive webinar where we will share:

  • Reflections from Schindler’s list survivor Rena Finder

  • Effective strategies to prepare students to be thoughtful, emotionally engaged viewers of the film

  • Resources to provide historical context

  • Lesson ideas to connect this historical moment to contemporary events
