Diaries during Crisis, War, and Genocide with Alexandra Zapruder
Wednesday, December 2, 2020 | 4:30-6:00 pm EST (3:30 – 5:00 PM Central Time) | Zoom
In partnership with the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center
Salvaged Pages is a stirring collection of diaries written by young people during the Holocaust that reflects a vast and diverse range of experiences—some of the writers were refugees, others were hiding or passing as non-Jews, some were imprisoned in ghettos. The diarists ranged in age from twelve to twenty-two; some survived the Holocaust, but most perished. Taken together, their accounts of daily events and their often unexpected thoughts, ideas, and feelings serve to deepen and complicate our understanding of life during the Holocaust. This workshop will focus on how to use Salvaged Pages, and the accompanying documentary, I’m Still Here, with your students. Alexandra will also share resources designed to help Social Studies, English language arts, and other teachers use young writers’ diaries in their classroom.
