Witness to History Project – Student Programs
The Witness To History Project – Student Presentations promote the lessons of the Holocaust by direct interaction between students and survivors. Participants adopt a survivor by learning their unique account through listening to them tell their story, asking questions, and then re-telling the story to others. Ultimately the participant has the lifelong job of educating others about the Holocaust by sharing this personal narrative.
