Traces of Memory. Saved from Oblivion.

The educational project Teaching the Holocaust was introduced in the fourth class of vocational school at the General-Technical School in Lubliniec for students in their last year of high school. This was based on the fact that the materials in the project require students to be at a certain level of personal and social maturity. It includes several levels (elements) and is not yet complete. In the summary (below), you will find the different elements as well as photographs.

The other two documents below, "The Auschwitz Album" and "Traces of Memory", constitute two single lessons that were part of this project. "The Auschwitz Album" works with photos from the Auschwitz Album; "Traces of Memory" works with Centropa's materials (website, Teofila Silberring film) in order to raise students’ awareness of other peoples’ suffering, the Holocaust and, in that context, to learn about tolerance

Teofila Silberring -- So That Memory Doesn't Die

This unique story is told to us by a woman who never left her beloved Krakow—except for the six years she lived in Nazi hell. Mrs Silberring remembers her neighborhood by door numbers--her school at this address, her synagogue over there--even the church she used to go to on Sunday's with her governess. In 1939, a life of wealth and privilege turned into a life of hell and torment. This is her story. This film was made possible thanks to grants from the The German Federal Agency for Civic Education (BPB) and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference).
