Summary"2012 is the centenary of the birth of Raoul Wallenberg. For this occasion [The USC Shoah Foundation] developed rich and useful educational material for teachers using a personal approach and incorporating visual history testimony about Wallenberg, heroism, and the Holocaust. The module reflects a pedagogical philosophy based upon the belief that knowledge is constructed in the classroom together with the students. So their everyday experience of life, media contents, and popular culture is a significant part of the educational process constituted by a cooperative approach. This pedagogical philosophy understands that value construction, ethical questions, and social competencies are just as important as other educational knowledge and skills." —USC Shoah Foundation
