Could you be righteous?

Students will understand who were Righteous Among the Nations – people who not only saved Jews but risked their lives while doing that. They will be introduced the basic stages in the development of moral reasoning (Kohlberg’s interpretation). Holocaust dilemmas will help students understand the challenges that non-Jews have been faced with. They will understand the circumstances in which people lived during World War II through personal stories from 3 Centropa’s films as well as through research and analysis on the Righteous from Krusevac. In the end, they will have task to write an essay outlining their thoughts on the ability of a person to react fairly in life-threatening situations.
