Plays make active partners of those who see or read them. Students using scripts and related activities think, feel, and imagine as they make connections to dramatic and historic events. This anthology pulls together several complete scripts as well as segments of scripts about the Holocaust. These scripts provide unique opportunities for students studying the Holocaust to research, recount, reflect, and remember. This anthology is designed to be relevant as students pass from introductory through intermediate and advanced levels of Holocaust study. Appeal of the works to upper elementary, middle, and high school age students is predicated on issues and circumstances to which young people can relate. Each play is briefly introduced with information about the playwright. Noteworthy material relative to the play, such as awards garnered, a synopsis, or historical significance of content which facilitates placing the piece in context, is shared with the reader. Activities for teaching and learning about the Holocaust follow each script or excerpt. Appendixes provide resource information. Bringing together scripts, activities, and resources, this book has been compiled to offer intellectual and emotional experiences that students will long remember. The voices echoing dramatically from these scripted pages ring with both true and fictional stories of the Holocaust that we should not fail to hear.
