This lesson plan uses resources from the Centropa website including some of Ursula Reinhart-Döring’s lesson plan from the teachers’ section. Because her lesson was designed for ESL kids, Margaret Chasan adapted it for English speakers and added her own elements.
In this lesson plan, Centropa films are used to introduce students to Jewish life in Hungary during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with a focus on the diversity of economic status, assimilation and religious affiliation among the Jews. The goal of watching these films will be to explore Jewish life in Hungary before WWII.
