"This teaching resource facilitates student engagement with historical context and individual testimonies featured in the Carl Lutz exhibit... The guide complements classroom visits to the 90-minute interactive exhibit tour and workshop, and is divided into two sections. The pre-visit activities introduce students to fascism and racial antisemitism, and elicit discussion about Jewish life in prewar Hungary and under Nazi occupation. Post-visit exercises address thematic issues raised during the school program, and offer students the opportunity for further reflection on rescue, social justice and moral decision-making." Page 3
