An Introduction to Centropa’s film about Haya-Lea Detinko. This lesson uses excerpts from A Tale and Love and Darkness by the great Israeli novelist, and the film about Haya-Lea Dinko, to teach about live in the town of Rovno before WWII.
The interactive film scripts combine the scripts of the Centropa Films with the links metioned in the Study Guides, thus marking various historical, cultural and geographical references.
You can use the film scripts in your class in order to understand the fulm better and help students to dig deeper in the (personal) stories by exploring history.
The film scripts are available in English and German and can be downloaded as PDF documents.
This lesson plan uses resources from the Centropa website including some of Ursula Reinhart-Döring’s lesson plan from the teachers’ section. Because her lesson was designed for ESL kids, Margaret Chasan adapted it for English speakers and added her own elements.
This lesson plan describes how an Israeli school used Centropa´s Detinko film with Amos Oz's book "A tale of love and darkness". Both depict Jewish pre-war life in Rovno.
