After hearing one or more survivor stories, or reading or hearing a survivor story from the Web, make a collaged representation of that person's journey from before the Holocaust, during the Holocaust, and after the Holocaust. Encourage students to include photographs, maps, and other visual resources to the timeline. Photographs from this Teacher's Guide may be printed out and included. Poems or short quotations from the survivor testimony may also be added at appropriate locations.


Establish a rubric for the types and number of items to be included. You may also choose to evaluate the presentation on its composition and aesthetic merit.
