Summary
This teacher's guide supports the VHEC school program for the exhibition The Armenian Genocide & the Holocaust: One Man Takes a Stand: Armin T. Wegner & the Armenians of Anatolia, 1915–1916. The school program and teacher's guide consider these questions: "How did [Armin T. Wegner] respond to witnessing the Armenian genocide in 1915 and the Nazi persecution of the Jews in 1933? What can photographs tell us about genocide? How can documentation function as resistance? What is the potential of letter writing as a form of activism?" Page 4
