Location Webinar
Date Thu, Jan 25, 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Duration   2h

How was resistance possible in the horrific conditions of the Theresienstadt ghetto? In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, please join Sheryl Ochayon, Project Director of Echoes from Yad Vashem, to hear the incredible story of Petr Ginz and other imprisoned teenagers who refused to be vanquished. They managed to compose poetry, write, draw, and create magazines, all in secret. Petr's drawing of the moon even made it into outer space, symbolizing the heights the human spirit can reach.

This webinar is intended for students to view with their teachers and connects with the Prewar Jewish Life and Resistance lesson plans on the Echoes & Reflections website, and will be the subject of a new Echoes podcast for students.
