This 2015 Milton Wolf Prize winning lesson is designed to introduce students to the UN Declaration of Human Rights and to help them realize the need for individual civic responsibility to assure that these rights are reality for all humans. The lesson uses Survival in Sarajevo as an example of this responsibility in action and its impact during the Siege of Sarajevo. It is meant to be done as a Border Jumping exchange and was adapted by me from a lesson by Victor Gurevich to be done in conjunction with his students.
This was an on-going, cross-cultural project consisting of several min- lessons taught over the course of the school year, designed and taught by Ilijan Kuzmanovic (Republika Srbska) and Jeff Renihan (US), who met at the 2014 Centropa Summer Academy in Sarajevo.

Using Edward Serotta's photographs from the synagogue in Sarajevo during the Bosnian war of the 1990s, students will study several pictures carefully, answer questions and use what they learn in a creative writing assignment.
In these two back-to-back lessons, students will watch Survival in Sarajevo: Friendship in a Time of War - a story about a small group of Holocaust survivors and their children who worked with their Muslim and Christian neighbors to save each other and their city during the Bosnian war of the early 1990s - to explore civic values.
