Using Stories to Connect with Jewish History

Sharon Tash

This lesson asks students to research family history and to create a project that tells the story of his/her family origins. Using the Centropa films about Max Uri and Jozsef Faludi students examine issues regarding Jewish identity and cheder (Jewish religious school) and students compare specific issues in the films with their own lives today. Then, the lesson employs Centropa-inspired techniques to ask students to create their own short films about their personal family history.
