Holocaust Survivor Encyclopedia: Washington State - Stories, artifacts, and photos of survivors who made Washington State their home.

Artifacts from Washington State Holocaust Survivors

A poster series that promotes learning about the Holocaust through primary sources

"This series was perfect! Everyone has a bowl or a blanket…my students could connect with the objects and consequently connect with the individual stories."
 - Kirstin J., Teacher at Nooksack Valley High School

Everyday Objects consists of a set of twelve posters (size 8.5x11, double-sided). Each poster features an artifact and the story behind the object. The set is ideal for use in classrooms as an activity or display.

Each poster has been written and created with an attention to detail and language. The variety of artifacts and their corresponding stories encourage one to view the Holocaust from multiple perspectives.

The revised second edition of this series was funded by the Alfred and Tillie Shemanski Trust Fund. The original project was made possible by grants from Humanities Washington and the Women's Endowment Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.

Curriculum for "Everyday Objects"
Created by master teachers, this curriculum gives teachers background information and a variety of activities for using the poster set to teach about the Holocaust and related issues which face us today. Funding for the curriculum provided by 4Culture/Lodging Tax Fund.
