Voices of the Holocaust: Children Speak, an interactive English-language web
exhibit specifically tailored for students ages 11 to 13, is now available on the
Foundation's website. Narrated by actors Peter Coyote, Elijah Wood, and Natalie
Portman, Children Speak highlights the stories of four survivors who were children
during the Holocaust, and allows students to interact with them by exploring their
testimonies in the context of universal themes and historical overviews. Archival
film footage, a glossary, maps, and survivors' personal photos make the
testimonies user-friendly and accessible.
Also available online are easy-to-use, downloadable lesson plans, geared towards a middle school
audience, and predesigned student handouts that incorporate testimonies into lessons that
focus on history, vocabulary, or geography.
Children Speak was made possible by a generous grant from the Severin Wunderman Family
Survivors: Testimonies of the Holocaust, the Shoah Foundation's
award-winning educational CD-ROM is now available as an English language,
interactive web exhibit on the Foundation's website. Narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio and
Winona Ryder, the exhibit features the testimonies of four Holocaust
survivors born in Europe before World War II. Their video testimonies
introduce students to a wealth of information on the Holocaust and World
War II, and underscore the importance of tolerance in their own lives,
with themes that include identity, labels, and choices and consequences.
Simple navigation among personal testimonies, maps, historical overviews,
time lines, and glossary terms gives high school students the flexibility to learn at their own pace.
The Survivors: Testimonies of the Holocaust web exhibit was funded through the generosity of the
