Consider what it was like to grow up as an outsider in Nazi Germany with these firsthand accounts from a Jehovah's Witness and a Jew.
This website is designed to complement the film The Rescuers, directed by award-winning filmmaker Michael King. The Rescuers traces the effort of twelve diplomats who served in Europe during the Holocaust and, at great risk to themselves (and at times their loved ones), assisted Jews in their attempt to flee Nazi persecution. The film follows Sir Martin Gilbert and Stephanie Nyombayire, a survivor of the Rwandan Genocide who has become an anti-genocide activist in recent years. Gilbert is an acclaimed and prolific British historian, who is one of the foremost historians on the Holocaust.
Developed specifically for educators in Jewish settings, the webinar will explore five new lessons from Teaching Holocaust and Human Behavior which are designed to help you lead middle or high school students through an examination of the catastrophic period of the Holocaust from a historical perspective.
Explore our lessons on Who Will Write Our History, learn about educational resources on the Warsaw ghetto at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and listen to a discussion with the filmmaker on her visionary film.
