Help students learn from the personal experiences of Holocaust survivors who rebuilt their lives in the Kansas City area. Survivor testimonies are available in a variety of formats-photo, video, audio, and transcript. Links to supporting documents are provided.
The list of recommended websites for educators is different from the list created for students although there is overlap between the two.
Links to documents, historic photographs, artwork, maps, video and audio testimony of witnesses, and photos of artifacts. These primary source documents were selected for their usefulness in teaching and learning Holocaust concepts.
MCHE’s free lending library features books, videos, posters, local survivor testimonies, and other learning materials pertaining to the Holocaust.
Lesson plans created by KC to DC participants, Federman Cadre members, and MCHE staff. Links to plans on the sites of our partner organizations.
MCHE has classroom sets of texts along with supporting materials available for check-out.
The annual White Rose Research Contest offers prize money to 8th-12th grade students who conduct historical research using primary source documents and make connections between the Holocaust and contemporary issues. Contestants may submit an essay or documentary video as the final product of their research.
