Partnership with USC Shoah Foundation IWitness program

In partnership with USC Shoah Foundation, we launched a new activity on their powerful IWitness platform. This is part of an important initiative called 100 Days to Inspire Respect. In this activity, students will work with primary sources, photos and survivor video testimonies, to think about the topics of family, connection, and loss through the lens of survivors of the Holocaust and through the process of creating visual art.

The activity is called Resilience Through Art – The Memory Project.

If you are new to IWitness, you can register for a free account to fully explore the site.
