In this activity, students will be introduced to the interactive biography of Jewish survivor, Pinchas Gutter and will engage with him through USC Shoah Foundation’s Dimensions in Testimony technology. Students will learn the techniques for having a conversation with a survivor and how to construct questions appropriately to elicit personal, historical and universal thematic responses. By the end of this activity, students will choose a creative expression to share what they have learned from Pinchas Gutter.
Dimensions in Testimony was developed in association with Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, with technology by USC Institute for Creative Technologies, and concept by Conscience Display.
Integration of Dimensions in Testimony in IWitness is made possible through the generous support of The Snider Foundation.
