This activity provides students with an opportunity to learn about the ill-fated voyage of the MS St. Louis in 1939, to hear how the events affected individuals, especially children and teenagers who were on the ship, and to construct a video project that identifies turning points in the journey through passengers' testimonies and photographs.
The activity can be used alone or as an extension to Echoes & Reflections' Unit: Perpetrators, Collaborators, and Bystanders.
