Using Video Testimonies in Remembrance Education
February 11, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Working with historical sources has become a key element of history education. A still rather innovative way to include such sources into history education is working with video-testimonies. Such personal narratives are a powerful tool when it comes to enabling students to understand the impact that historical events have on individuals, communities, and society as a whole. Video-testimonies of victims of National Socialism in particular have proven to be a quite useful tool in the prevention of antisemitism. The inclusion of such sources into pedagogical practice thus has become a very fruitful approach especially regarding the issue of National Socialism and the history of the Holocaust in particular.
At the end of this workshop, you will:
- understand the genesis of video-testimonies of victims of National Socialism.
- know how you can gain access to video-testimonies.
- have developed an understanding of the potential of video-testimonies as a source for teaching about the Holocaust.
- know how they can put video-testimonies to use in a learning environment.
