This workshop tells the individual stories of 12 teenage victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution. It has been designed for mature teenagers and young adults and seeks to encourage discussion and empathy with young people’s experiences of the Holocaust. Developed by Eli Sassoon and Barnabas Balint as part of the Youth Forum for the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, it presents a series of primary source excerpts and poses discussion questions for participants. At this session of the Holocaust Studies Reading Group, we will be one of the first groups to use the resource and reflect on its effectiveness.
