This movie, which focuses on the story of the Lodz ghetto, will discuss the challenges of teaching about this period: how can we make the story of the ghettos relevant to our students? How can we shed light today, decades after the tragic events, on what Jews knew, felt or understood during those terrifying days? And What are the sources that can reveal their internal worlds?
The video is aligned with lesson 4 of the Echoes and Reflections educational program and presents a multidisciplinary approach to this difficult subject of life in the ghettos.
