Names Not Numbers Program
The Names, Not Numbers program is a very personal experience and creates a unique bond between survivors and students. The program began this year in the fall with a professional journalist training our 8th Grade students to become interviewers. Students will welcome the survivors to school and began building that personal connection with each other, as they interview and record their testimony. The students then worked in groups to edit the interviews into compelling narratives, encapsulating what life was like before, during and after the war. The program culminates with a community-wide movie screening which highlights not only how the Holocaust happened but also its impact on individuals.
