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 life.
