"The Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre’s school program and teacher’s guide link the history of Albania during the Holocaust and the photographs of Muslim rescuers featured in the [Albanian Muslim Rescuers During the Holocaust] exhibit to the themes of social justice and human rights. This guide’s pre-visit student readings and activity will prepare students for the VHEC-based school program, in which students will explore the topic of rescue during the Holocaust through an analysis of Gershman’s portraits. A number of post-visit activities extend gallery learning back into the classroom, and expand on the theme of rescueof human lives and of aspects of cultureduring the Holocaust and other genocides."
