The purpose of the workshop is to enhance the ability of teachers to use
the film "Schindler's List" as an instructional resource, and to provide an understanding of how the underlying lessons of
the Holocaust can be applied to contemporary problems.
The film itself is a great starting point for the discussion of bigotry
and scapegoating. The 90-page manual Teaching Schindler enriches
the pedagogical aspects of the film by providing
exploration of how the demands of film as a medium bear upon the telling
- Well-researched historical background on Schindler and the Holocaust,
- A probing analysis of the dynamics of altruistic behavior,
- Ideas for making the Schindler story relevant to the students everyday
confrontations with bigotry and injustice,
- Course materials for use in the class.
