Young Voices During the Holocaust: Collected Resources

Posted by Mary Hendra on January 15, 2016

During 2015 and 2016, we've been honored to collaborate with the Museum of Tolerance to provide an institute which focuses on "Young Voices During the Holocaust."  This workshop is particularly relevant for teachers of The Diary of Anne Frank and those who teach the Holocaust. Participants come away with a much deeper understanding of the Holocaust and the specific impact and voice of adolescents during that time. 

In this post, you'll find the slide resources and Connecting questions used during this workshop. For additional opportunities which bring together Facing History and the Museum of Tolerance, please email us!

  • Why does this book still resonate today?
  • Why is it important to understand the historical context for this book, beyond its universal lessons about adolescence?
  • How did the institute deepen your understanding of or appreciation for this book?  What questions do you still have?


After the institute, we invite additional conversation related to your on-going study of the Holocaust and Human Behavior.  Post your thoughts or questions below for others to see and share responses. Highlighted readings:HHB-cover_0.jpg
