Summary
"This teachers' guide is a companion to two exhibitions, In Focus: The Holocaust Through the VHEC Collection and Faces of Survival: Photographs by Marissa Roth produced by the VHEC. This specific teaching resource facilitates students engagement with their visit to the VHEC. The guide complements the two hour long interactive exhibit tour and workshop... The pre-visit activity introduces students to pre-war life in Eastern and Western Europe with artefacts and photographs featured in the In Focus exhibition. By analyzing primary sources, students actively participate in the process of historical inquiry and enhance their observational and interpretative skills. Discussion questions foster further thinking of the importance of primary sources as historical evidence. The post-visit activity gives students the opportunity to learn about the impact of the Holocaust on survivors by engaging with their powerful messages to students as featured in the Faces of Survival exhibition. Discussion questions elicit reflection on antisemitism and racism today, and how we can combat social injustices both individually and as a global society." —Introduction, page 2
