									                              Night – Holocaust Video Journal Project

               Have you ever wished that you could go back in time and change
               something that you or someone else did? As a society we learn
               from our decisions, triumphs, and mistakes, therefore it is
               necessary for us to reflect on our lives so that we can better
               ourselves. Survivors of the Holocaust show us the importance of
               memory, storytelling, identity, and inhumanity through their
memoirs and tales of endurance. Using your knowledge of Night and the
Holocaust, you will create a video journal of your life which effectively
communicates two decisions, two triumphs, and two mistakes. You will create a
video journal via Photo Story or Microsoft Movie Maker and will show the class
how one of the themes (memory, storytelling, identity, or inhumanity) affects your
