Educational Resource

Holocaust Memorial Day offers teachers the opportunity to raise awareness amongst students of all the communities who suffered as a result of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution. Film interpretations of the Holocaust narrative are a powerful, if controversial, teaching tool within this context.

Film Education has produced an educational resource that supports teachers who wish to use film to learn about the Holocaust. Central to our approach is to encourage teachers and pupils to interrogate film texts in terms of their historical authenticity, their purpose, their historical significance and the interpretation of the past.

In keeping with the theme for 2012, Speak Up, Speak Out, educational activities might focus on examples of individual and collective resistance against discrimination and persecution during the Holocaust.
