The International School for Holocaust Studies

e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators

Welcome to the 23rd issue of Teaching the Legacy. This edition commemorates fifty years since Adolf Eichmann was tried and convicted in a Jerusalem courtroom. We have included articles about the trial and how it affected the Israeli communal narrative. Since the trial was the first time where survivor testimony was heard publicly in Israel, we have interviewed Dr. Dori Laub who has spent much of his life interviewing survivors, placing importance on oral history. In addition, we are featuring our new online educational sub-site to mark Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). As always, the newsletter features new publications, book reviews, and updates on recent and upcoming activities at the International School for Holocaust Studies and across Yad Vashem. We hope you find this issue interesting and resourceful and we look forward to your feedback.

  • “To Remember Their Faces” – This teacher’s guide uses prewar photographs to provide a tool for educators looking to introduce the subject of the Holocaust to students ages 11-17. This is an effort to maintain the humanity of the victims of the Holocaust, and to not only think in terms of numbers, but also in terms of real people who were similar to many adults and children today.
