As a teenager, Elie Wiesel, along with his father, spent the tail end of World War II trying to survive horrifying internment at Auschwitz and Buchenwald. A memoir of this period in his life, written in 1960, became the Nobel Prize-winning novel, ‘Night.’ For almost 60 years, ‘Night’ has been one of the primary resources of Holocaust history. In July of 2019, Museum Without Walls will take students and teachers on a journey to follow in the steps of Mr. Wiesel’s gripping story. The 9-day program is geared towards educators and students. Participants will travel to Krakow, Berlin and Weimar to study Holocaust history from Mr. Wiesel’s perspective. Travelers can expect to receive a study notebook with copies of primary sources such as maps, timelines, documents and a copy of newest edition of ‘Night”. Teachers will receive multiple lessons plans from our education director.
Offered by Museum Without Walls in partnership with the Holocaust Center for Humanity.
