Laszlo Nussbaum: Europe without borders

Centropa

Author: 
Neil Kramer, New Community Jewish High School, Los Angeles

This lesson about "Europe without borders, or what color is your flag?" uses a personal narrative, a Centropa film set in today’s Romania, and an oral history interview with the film’s subject, Lazslo Nussbaum, to alert students to how varying perspectives and methodologies can affect the ways in which we can know about the past. Because the story involves borders and loyalties, it is recommended to show a short narrated Centropa on Jewish soldiers in the Austro-Hungarian army beforehand.
