Holocaust, Civil Rights, and Digital Literacy in the Global Classroom
|Date||Sat, Oct 17, 8:30am - 11:30am|
What is Centropa? Centropa, a Jewish historical institute based in Vienna, interviewed 1,200 elderly Jews living in 15 European countries. We didn’t use video or focus on the Holocaust, but asked our respondents to tell us their entire life stories spanning the 20th c. as they showed us their old family photographs.
Centropa offers teachers a database of thousands of annotated photos, hundreds of interviews, and scores of award-winning, short multimedia films (none longer than 30 minutes)—ideal for creating virtual or in-class projects that teach digital literacy, promote critical thinking, increase global awareness, all found at http://www.centropa.org, and all free of charge. Each summer we bring the most innovative teachers to the great cities of Central Europe to travel with 80 teachers from 15 countries—in 2021 we will be in Vienna.
Teachers use Centropa resources to teach history, Holocaust, social studies, ELA, art, foreign language,
