This video and story both made what happened with the Jews during Hitler’s rule seem so much more real. This video did a great job in capturing the story and the emotional connection the artist and her mother both had to the events.
It enlivened the curriculum and enabled our students to connect their family history with that of the overall curriculum, empowering them to see their connections to important historical events. Students were excited to participate in this unique activity combining artistic expression and history.
