The exhibit gives students a view of the Holocaust by focusing on one day during the Holocaust—April 19, 1943. On this day three important and very different events happened which illustrate wartime heroism, Jewish resistance against all odds, and government and diplomatic indifference to the fate of Europe’s Jews. They show that the decision to do the right thing—to be an Upstander—can be made under the worst conditions.

Students Will

  • Identify the importance of three different events that occurred on the same day, April 19, 1943.
  • Analyze quotes of famous Upstanders during WWII
  • Tour museum exhibits via audio guides or with a docent.
  • Listen to Survivor Testimony in our theater. Film presentations will be shown when a survivor speaker is not available.
