April 2, 2015 — Transformation & Remembrance: A Journey from the Holocaust to the Classroom is a powerful documentary from the producers of NJTV’s Classroom Close-Up, NJ series that follows the journey of New Jersey educators to Europe as they learn about the Holocaust in very tactile ways.
Visiting concentration camps and other pertinent sites in Germany, the Czech Republic and other countries, and discussing teaching tactics with European educators help this group bring the lessons of the Holocaust back to their Garden State classrooms. Watch a program preview here.
Among those who guide the group is Maud Dahme, a Holocaust survivor who serves on the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education, and is a former State Board of Education president and recent New Jersey Hall of Fame inductee.
