To Remember Their Faces

Teacher’s Guide Using Prewar Holocaust Photographs

Grades: 6-12

To Remember their Faces is an introductory activity geared towards teachers undertaking Holocaust studies with their students. Beginning with students at ages eleven or twelve, and continuing through high school, educators can find this a useful resource for introducing the Holocaust in less graphic terms. By seeing the human face we believe students will begin to understand that this happened to human beings and not numbers. As beguiling as many of the pictures are, one cannot ignore the fate of those in the photos, almost all of whom were murdered during the Holocaust; the majority in Auschwitz-Birkenau. The following is a suggested method for using the pictures.
