Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah) 2019 - Educational Resources

Activity Using Biographical Videos and Additional Resources

This activity features several short videos depicting the lives of Jews at different locations during the Holocaust. The videos provide an overview of the lives of Jews who were forced to fight their personal, unique battles as part of the collective battle for survival on behalf of the Jewish people.

Each of these figures have since become symbols of the struggle for survival, each for their own reasons - be it through  their creative and ethical endeavors, armed resistance against the Nazis, or their desire to document and to dream in an impossible reality. Some of them also provide us with a glimpse of the communities to which they belonged, their backgrounds and fates. Thus these videos create a kind of human mosaic of events during the Holocaust.

Since some of these figures have since taken places of prominence in Holocaust memory, we have chosen to discuss their stories not individually, but in a wider context of the unfolding events of the Holocaust in time and place.
