Description:
Writing in Exile was developed by Laura Pritchard Dobrin, a 10th grade English teacher from Virginia (USA). In this video building activity, students learn about the poetry of Lotte Kramer, a German Jew who was placed on the Kindertransport in 1939 and who writes about themes such as exile, family, identity and memory. Students develop important 21st century skills as well as literary analysis, writing and listening and communication skills.
