Those Who Were There: Using Podcasts and Survivor Testimony in Your Classroom

As fewer Holocaust survivors and witnesses are alive to share their stories, how can recorded testimonies of Holocaust survivors and witnesses inform our understanding and our students’ understanding of this history? How can these stories educate us about our responsibilities in the world today to share and preserve memory? In preparation for International Holocaust Remembrance Day, listen to a conversation with Eric Marcus, co-producer of the Those Who Were There: Voices from the Holocaust podcast, and Stephen Naron, Director of the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies. Explore the significance of hearing testimonies from survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and the impact of using podcasts as a learning tool in your classroom.
