Duration   1h

The first-hand recollections of survivors provide a unique eyewitness view of some of the darkest recesses of history. USC Shoah Foundation - Institute for Visual History and Education has videotaped the personal stories — testimonies — of 53,000 of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust.

Watching audiovisual testimonies of survivors sharing their harrowing stories and perceiving the emotion on their faces is a powerful way to teach about the human cost of intolerance, hatred, and indifference from a deeply personal perspective.

Through IWitness and Echoes & Reflections, over 4400 of these testimonies are made available to educators. Join this webinar to learn how to access and use the testimonies and student activities connected to each of the 12 units.

Echoes & Reflections' webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
