This study kit includes a videotape, a booklet and pictures and is meant for children in the elementary grades.
The videotape was filmed in an art class. The teacher tells his students the story of Hannale and her family from the time they moved to the ghetto until they escaped to the other side of the ghetto walls.
The teacher’s story is accompanied by drawings made by Jews who were there. The booklet includes an explanation of the program, a historical review, and ideas and suggestions for student activities after viewing the film.
The pictures are photographs of eight drawings from the film, wrapped in clear plastic and appropriate for children.
