Getting to know and “adopting” my neighborhood

Author: 
Katerina Efraimidou
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.
