Schöneberg Walking Tour/Restrictions on Jewish Life in Nazi Germany

Using Google Earth, students take a virtual tour of Berlin's Schöneberg neighborhood to learn about the restrictions on Jewish life imposed by National Socialism beginning in 1933 that are commemorated on signs on residential streets in that neighborhood. Students then have a choice as to which writing assignment they want to complete to "report" on what they have learned (as a reporter, historian, or Jewish person who lived during that period).

Getting to know and “adopting” my neighborhood

A year-long project that includes several parts—making videos and a photograph tour of the local Jewish history in Thessaloniki, creating a Holocaust library for the school, creating an exhibition for students to present their work to the school. The goal: to help students understand the sociopolitical motives that drive people into committing atrocities. I believe that my students learned to recognize prejudiced attitudes, racist behaviors and also developed skills in order to face them off in the future.

Then and Now

Students bring in a family photograph they like. This can be from a vacation, a holiday celebration, a family life cycle event, any photograph that includes the student. In class, students look through the Centropa database to find a photograph that looks similar to the one they brought in – people might be posed similarly to the people in their picture, or doing the same thing, etc. Then they read about that photograph, as well as the Centropa interview to find out about the life of that survivor.

Telling Jewish Stories using Wordle

Students are each given a short, multimedia film from Centropa to watch. As they watch – they may need to watch it more than once – they are to write down words that important to the story: events (e.g., Kristallnacht), values (e.g., loyalty), or anything important to the person whose story they are watching (e.g., a violin, sports, family). Once they are clear about the story, they go to the Wordle website (http://www.wordle.net) and make a word cloud that accurately represents the story they watched.
