Information Quest is a brief activity designed for students to view a selected experience from Auschwitz survivor Ruth Brand's testimony. Students will engage with their assigned story using a built-in tool that enables each to create a word cloud, a fitting title, a meaningful quotation, and a personal response to reflect individual feelings and perceptions about the story. To culminate the activity, students will post their completed Information Quests to discuss with their classmates.
This activity aligns with Echoes & Reflections Unit 6: Jewish Resistance.
