Seeing Through “Paradise”

DVD

This kit is made up of 28 images and an educational packet describing how teachers can incorporate the art of Terezin into their Facing History and Ourselves unit. Terezin is an important case study of the roles art and propaganda play in a society, particularly because such a wide range of art was made there—from Nazi propaganda produced by prison laborers to underground art produced after hours.
