Students will learn techniques for having a productive conversation, including learning how to construct questions to elicit personal, historical and thematic responses.

This activity intersects with Echoes & Reflections Unit 1: Studying the Holocaust.

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.
