In this activity, students will consider the role beliefs and values play in the choices people make. They will explore the personal motivations of two rescuers/aid providers from the Holocaust and Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Then, students will search IWitness and build a video that reflects other rescuer/aid giver motivations and how identity played a role in those choices.

We’d love to hear from you! Please give us your feedback on this activity & the 100 Days to Inspire Respect initiative:
