The International School for Holocaust Studies
An educational resource focusing on the human dimension of liberation after the Holocaust. Liberation represented not only the liberation of Europe from the Nazi yoke and the end of the war, but also it represented the liberation of thousands of Jews from the extermination camps and the places where they had sought refuge during the long war years. With liberation, Jewish victims became human beings again. The unit discusses the existential and psychological dimensions of being liberated through literature and testimonies of Holocaust survivors.

Holocaust denial is a widespread phenomenon in the Western world, as well as in
some Arab countries. Various so-called scholars and academics, the most notable
of whom is David Irving from Great Britain, assert that the Holocaust never
happened and six million Jews were not murdered by the Nazis. These lies and
fabrications are disseminated in books, journals, conferences and on numerous
Internet websites. This booklet analyses the phenomenon of Holocaust denial
and provides suggestions on how to counter it.
The CD is a collection of resource materials intended for the educator. It has 24 primary source documents from the Holocaust that are in English, German and Russian that were written by Germans, Jews, Poles, Russians and Americans concerning the destruction of the Jews and their response to the mass murder.
The unit contains:
A guide and CD-ROM

“That is our lives!” I raised my voice painfully. “Fragments – all we have left of our family, of ourselves, of our Judaism – are only fragments.” Tears filled my eyes and Arik pulled me towards him and held me in his arms. “No, Anna,” he protested vehemently. “We have each other, we have Lise who fulfilled the dream, we have a country to go to, and we have our religion in which we can find comfort.” His voice softened as he added gently, “The only thing we don’t have is parents.” Naomi Shmuel is an author and anthropologist, lecturer and parent group facilitator, who specializes in the fields of multicultural education and cross-cultural counseling. She wrote Fragments based on the experiences of her mother, the author and poet Karen Gershon z”l (née Kate Lowenthal, Anna in the book), and Karen’s sisters.
