The Bosnian-Serb siege of Sarajevo, from spring 1993 until winter 1996, was the longest in modern history. With electricity, water and food supplies cut off and only sporadically supplied, with 11,541 citizens shot by snipers or killed by mortars, Sarajevans had to depend on each other.
In studying rescue, the students learn about individual rescuers (mainly in Eastern Europe) and the challenges they faced. They also compare rescue on a national context, contrasting the Jewish experience in Denmark with that of most Jews in Poland, trying to determine the foundation for most Danish Jews’ survival of the Holocaust, compared to those of Poland. The part of the lesson about Bulgaria stems from a reading the students have completed in advance, which mentions rescue in Bulgaria, Le Chambon (France), and Denmark.
Using Edward Serotta's photographs from the synagogue in Sarajevo during the Bosnian war of the 1990s, students will study several pictures carefully, answer questions and use what they learn in a creative writing assignment.
