Salvaged Pages: Young Writers’ Diaries of the Holocaust – 2/16/22
During the Holocaust, from one end of Europe to the other, from before the outbreak of war until the liberation, young people kept journals and diaries. They carried their journals with them from their homes to hiding places, from transit camps to ghettos. When times grew difficult, they smuggled and stole scraps of paper, found pencil stubs and worn ink pens. Despite fear and repression, despite hunger, cold, exhaustion, and despair, young people documented their experiences and their impressions of their lives, and in so doing marked their places in the world. –From the introduction of Salvaged Pages.
Join the Virginia Holocaust Museum for a one day workshop focused on "Salvaged Pages: Young Writers’ Diaries of the Holocaust," led by author Alexandra Zapruder. The workshop will focus on using young diaries in the classroom to teach about the Holocaust.
