Activity Overview


Using primary source documents is an incredibly important part of studying history and understanding how the people of that time reacted to or were affected by events. When it comes to studying the Holocaust, understand the perspective of a victim will help students ground the events in reality and better analyze the effects of actions.

In this activity, students will create a traditional storyboard that represents the experience of a victim of the Holocaust. This assignment will first require students to research an individual that was impacted by the events of the Holocaust. There are several accounts, so students should be encouraged to go beyond Anne Frank's accounts. Once students have found a resource, such as an autobiography or interview, they will choose a series of quotes that they found to be the most profound. These quotes will act as an outline for the storyboard. Students should include each quote in the text box below and create a corresponding representation of the quote.

For an alternative to this assignment, students may want to create a graphic novel instead of a traditional storyboard. You can add additional templates to the assignment to give students an option and update the instructions accordingly.
