Stand Up: Lessons from the Holocaust

Soon it will be too late to hear directly from Holocaust survivors themselves the lessons they want to impart to us. This documentary features the stories of four survivors of the Holocaust as told by the survivors. In this documentary, we explore how their experiences help us, both now and as we face the future, and how their experiences speak to us about standing up when we see prejudice, tyranny, and inhumanity.

We want this documentary to serve as a resource for educators to be able to incorporate these concepts into their classrooms. The lessons in this documentary can be applied to any number of circumstances, as the message of kindness and up-stander behavior is universal. 

We asked students for their questions, which we presented to four Portland area Holocaust survivors.
