abstract
Provides information and insight to students through an invaluable primary source - the firsthand testimonies of twenty-five people who experienced and witnessed the events of the Holocaust and lived to tell what happened. Among the events the survivors describe are: life in Europe before the war, the November Pogrom ('Kristallnacht', or the "Night of Broken Glass"), memories of state-sponsored discrimination, and eyewitness accounts of the ghettos, concentration camps, and death camps. The program concludes with thoughts about rebuilding life after the war, as well as reflections on survival, humanity, and the future.
