Auschwitz: If You Cried, You Died. Teacher's Guide to the Video Program.
Moore Foundation, Indianapolis, IN.
Designed to accompany a videotape chronicling the journey of two Holocaust survivors as they revisit the site of the concentration camp at Auschwitz (Poland), the guide provides questions, exercises, and suggestions for further activities. The guide begins with a description of how to present the 28-minute videotape "Auschwitz: If You Cried, You Died" and the discussion following the video. A worksheet follows with questions to answer before viewing the video. A summary of the Holocaust precedes a discussion of themes, questions, and answers that might be explored after viewing the video. Eleven questions deal with issues of prejudice and violence. Five role play situations precede suggested school projects. A contract for a personal commitment against prejudice provides an example of ways individuals can prevent prejudice. A list of 12 subjects give ideas for visiting speakers or student reports. Nine suggested activities for different courses precede summary articles on how Mike Vogel survived the concentration camp and the events that brought him to the United States. (CK)
