Recommendations To Educators
Alberto M. Carvalho - Superintendent of Schools - Miami Dade County Public Schools: "Feedback from our secondary teachers and instructional support staff has been very positive regarding using the film as part of their efforts in educating young people about the history and tragedies surrounding the Holocaust during World War II.”
Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff - Director - University of Miami - Holocaust Teacher Institiute: "Perfect for viewing in a single class period. It would be an appropriate introduction to a unit on The Nazi Holocaust of 1933-1945, which is mandated in the state of Florida for all public schools”. Miami-Dade County Public Schools teachers have reported it to be of high interest to students and use as an instructional resource. It is my pleasure to recommend the film as a major visual resource on the study of the Holocaust to Florida school districts for grades 7-12 and Adult Education."
Dr. Michael Berenbaum - Scholar - Historian - Specialized on The Study of The Holocaust: "Its length is perfect for classroom use as it allows time for discussion and reflection, essential after all Holocaust films, but most especially this one, which is compelling and poignant as it that reflects on diverse experiences of loss and absence."
