This is a history project but because we want our students ultimately to teach each other, we started with an introductory video conference during which students asked each other questions and learned a little about one another. Students will then choose a biography from the Centropa website to read and study, as an example of what life was like for someone in a Central or Eastern European country during WWII.
The interactive film scripts combine the scripts of the Centropa Films with the links metioned in the Study Guides, thus marking various historical, cultural and geographical references.
You can use the film scripts in your class in order to understand the film better and help students to dig deeper in the (personal) stories by exploring history.
The film scripts are available in English and German and can be downloaded as PDF documents.
