Witnessing Holocaust History: From Generation to Generation
Wednesday, January 27, 2021 9 A.M. EST
International Holocaust Memorial Day
World ORT, the WE ARE HERE! Foundation, and the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center of Philadelphia have partnered this year to provide an international experience of Holocaust education and remembrance to students around the world. This is an international project that commemorates the Holocaust and also provides opportunities for global Holocaust education, engaging the next generation of learners.
The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center will provide Witness to History Survivor Testimony programs to ORT, the global education network driven by Jewish values, where students will have the opportunity to engage directly with a Holocaust survivor and hear their stories. These students will also, through the WE ARE HERE! Foundation, learn the importance and legacy of the Partisans’ Song, and join together globally through sharing that music in their own languages. The Partisans’ Song, the song of hope, is the legacy of the partisans and the survivors.
Join us on January 27, 2021 at 9 A.M. EST for a special broadcast program which will showcase the testimony shared with the students, allow them to describe and share their experiences with each other, and connect globally through the harmony of learning experiences and the singing of the Partisan Song.
