A proposal for an educational activity following two episodes from Yad Vashem's YouTube series - "Questions We Wanted to Ask - Conversations with Holocaust Survivors"

Intended for elementary and high school students
Duration of activity:
one hour


Getting to know the 'prisoner's experience' in Auschwitz through personal questions and answers of the survivors, and not necessarily through the historical-chronological narrative.
An emotional processing of the 'informal meeting' with Holocaust survivors and the issues arising from the videos using the question cards.

The course of the activity -
The students will watch the videos "Questions We Wanted to Ask - Conversations with Holocaust Survivors" and then talk about the survivors' answers by responding to the discussion questions and the attached question cards.


Here are some videos of conversations with Holocaust survivors who survived the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. In the videos, you will be able to hear about the arrival at the camp, the daily life there and the memories of the camp that accompany these survivors to this day, every day. After watching the videos, you can move on to the educational activity and discussion.
