In this video, “The Auschwitz Album - Guidelines for Educators”, Dr. Na’ama Shik presents a rare, important piece of visual documentation of the workings at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp - known as the “Auschwitz Album”. Depicting the arrival and selection of a transport of Hungarian Jews from Carpatho-Ruthenia in 1944, Dr. Shik provides the historical background and pedagogical analysis of the album, in order to assist the educator with teaching this subject in the classroom.

Dr. Na’ama Shik is Director of the Educational Technologies Department at the International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem.
