Educational Resources for the Traces Trilogy

Discover resources and ideas to enrich the viewing experience of the films in educational settings

As we push deeper into the 21st century, humanity faces an inflection point; as the last survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and the Second World War leave us, they take with them their personal memories of one of humanity’s darkest chapters.

Yet in the face of unfathomable horror, fleeting moments of bravery and generosity remind us of our capacity for courage and compassion. Our trilogy, Traces: Portraits of Resistance, Survival and Resolve,  brings three such histories to life and new audiences.

On this page you will find a collection of tools and resources developed to enrich the viewing experience of each film in Humanity in Action’s Traces trilogy in classrooms and in non-formal educational settings.

The materials are designed to inspire educators working in a wide range of organizations and institutions to create engaging lesson plans adaptable to different national contexts, age groups and teaching goals.

All educational materials for the films Two Trees in Jerusalem and My Father’s War are available in the following languages:

  • English
  • German
  • Polish
  • Hebrew
