"I can't stress how important I think it is for our students to be educated about our history and respective cultures and backgrounds. Thank you very much!.” ~Kyle (teacher)
Witness to History - Survivor Presentation
Witness to History - Survivor Presentation: Our Witness to History Project - Survivor Presentations provide the opportunity for students to hear a survivor's or liberator's testimony first hand. Survivors and liberators as eyewitnesses to the Holocaust are the richest and best way to educate our youth to emphasize the message that racial, ethnic, and religious hatred are social poisons that affect individual people and families and communities.
This program lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes and includes a question and answer session, allowing the audience to engage in a meaningful dialogue with the speaker. A Museum Educator accompanies the speaker and provides background on Holocaust history as it relates to the speaker and facilitates the question and answer session.
A personal presentation of images relating to the specific speaker is included in the presentation. These are not graphic in any nature and are appropriate for a wide range of audiences.
This program can be hosted at a venue of your choice or at the Museum and can be tailored to a degree to meet specific requests of teachers.
