About the Event
A webinar presented by Centropa and The Florida Holocaust Museum
What is Centropa? Centropa, a Jewish historical institute based in Vienna, interviewed 1,200 elderly Jews living in 15 European countries. We didn’t videotape the interview or focus on the Holocaust, but asked our respondents to tell us their entirelife stories spanning the 20th c. as they showed us their old family photographs.
Centropa offers teachers primary sources (annotated photographs, interviews), and secondary sources (award-winning, short multimedia films, none longer than 30 minutes) that teachers use to create virtual and in-class projects for teaching digital literacy, critical thinking, and global awareness. All are free of charge.
The Florida Holocaust Museum has provided Holocaust education across the state for almost 30 years. All primary and secondary sources shared by the Museum are free to teachers and students. We have digital and print content for grades K-12.
Teachers use Centropa and The FHM resources to teach Holocaust history,
Social Studies, ELA, art, foreign language, filmmaking, photography, and civics.
New to Centropa? We have a unique approach to 20th century history and Holocaust education:
· students relate to survivor interviews because they get to know survivors from their childhood through older age, and connect to their stories of growing up, overcoming hardship, and resilience;
· pedagogy: no boxed curriculum—youdecide how our resources work for you and your students;
· cross-competency projects: Centropa’s Milton Wolf Prize for Student Advocacy empowers students to learn how to be active citizens, find a passion project, and educate people how to get involved;
· international teachers network: Centropa’s Border Jumping Program matches you with teachers in Europe and/or Israel so you can create a global classroom through cross-cultural projects.
