This is a plan I created during my Educational Technology master’s program. During this project, I examined current issues with Holocaust Education and ways in which technology can help bring survivors’ voices to the forefront of the classroom. Because of technology’s progression, students can now interact with holograms of survivors telling their stories. Even more, students can ask questions to these digital representations and receive answers in real-time.
Efforts have been underway to catalog the experiences from those who are still left to tell their history. This is an even more important undertaking now than ever. Remaining survivors are few, and within a few decades, no one will remain to speak on behalf of those who were murdered in the Holocaust.
This topic is of special importance to me. Through family history research, I discovered my grandfather’s uncle was a political prisoner in Sachsenhausen.
