Oral History in the Classroom

Oral histories are excellent tools to use when teaching students about the Holocaust. The Virginia Holocaust Museum is offering a number of thematic clips which will allow teachers to supplement their study of the Holocaust with those who witnessed it first-hand. The list below is the beginning of this project and allows teachers to pick-and-choose which testimony they would like to use based on what they might be teaching.     

These are only a few of the hundreds of oral histories in the VHM collection.  If you are interested in viewing an oral history or have a question about one of the clips in this section please contact Timothy Hensley.
