Why I Chose Holocaust Memorial Service

Each year, approximately 50 young Austrians go abroad to intern at Holocaust museums and education centres around the world. Maximilliam Murg, who is currently stationed at the Neuberger, discusses his motivations for embarking upon Holocaust Memorial Service and how the culture in Austria has gradually shifted from that of the “first victim of Nazi aggression” to one of “shared responsibility in the Holocaust.”

 

Suitable for grades 7 and higher.
For individual classes as well as larger groups. AV required.

Children of the Holocaust

Through a series of animated, award-winning short films, students learn about the experiences of Jewish children who were part of the Kindertransport program. Before the start of the Second World War, approximately 10,000 children escaped Nazi persecution when their parents managed to send them to England, to be cared for by strangers. As a result of the Holocaust, most never saw their parents again. A facilitated discussion accompanies each film.

 

Suitable for grades 6 and higher. For individual classes as well as larger groups. AV required.

From Generation to Generation

Using recorded testimony, images, and storytelling, the adult child of a Holocaust survivor narrates their parent’s personal experiences surviving the Holocaust, and immigrating to Canada. In this interactive format, descendants of Holocaust survivors continue the legacy of Holocaust education through personal connection to the genocide.

 

Suitable for grades 7 and higher.
For individual classes as well as larger groups. AV required.

Film & Recorded Testimony with Facilitated Discussion

A short film or recorded testimony segment (between 12-18 minutes in length) introduces a specific theme or topic connected to the Holocaust.
