“If we do not talk about it, if we do not remember, then the world will never know. And that has made me speak about it.”

—Henry Meyer, Holocaust Survivor

Advanced Educator Workshop
Salvaged Pages: Young Writers Diaries of the Holocaust
Featuring Alexandra Zapruder

Monday, October 9

4:30p.m.-6:30p.m.

8401 Montgomery Road
Cincinnati, Ohio 45206

Salvaged Pages is a collection of diaries written by young people during the Holocaust that give us firsthand accounts of the fears and hopes of those in hiding, ghettos, or far from home.  Compiled by Alexandra Zapruder, the diaries allow us to examine the history of the Holocaust and the complexities of human behavior.

The workshop will introduce educators to the material with a series of close readings of diary excerpts, exploring the various approaches to using the text in the classroom.

Alexandra Zapruder began her career as a member of the founding staff of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. Her first book, Salvaged Pages: Young Writers’ Diaries of the Holocaust, (Yale University Press, 2002) won the National Jewish Book Award in the Holocaust category. In 2005 she wrote and co-produced I’m Still Here, a documentary film for young audiences based on her book.

Her current book, Twenty-Six Seconds: A Personal History of the Zapruder Film, tells the story of her grandfather’s home movie of President Kennedy’s assassination.

The workshop is open to all educators, light dinner will be provided, registration required.

This workshop is presented in partnership with the Claims Conference.
