Students Talk with Holocaust Survivors

The Zelikovitz Centre is currently working together with the Shoah (Holocaust) Committee of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa to produce a Holocaust Eucational Film entitled Living History: Students Talk with Survivors. The film documents the interaction between Canadian Holocaust survivors and students in the classroom. The film is being directed by Gemini-nominated filmmaker Francine Zuckerman.

For years, Holocaust survivors have played an important role in Canadian public education through their classroom visits. They have taught young Canadians about the dangers of racial prejudice and Antisemitism as well as of the importance of the values of tolerance and the recognition of diversity. This film aims to document the contributions that survivors have made to Holocaust education and the significant impact that their presentations have had on students and teachers.

The film can be viewed below:
