Behind Every Name

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has released a new series of short animated films: Behind Every Name. Video links:

An athlete’s defiance in the face of Nazi oppression.
A soldier’s courage through captivity.
A friendship across continents.
The rescue of 50 children.
A professor’s plea for help.

Each of the videos in this series tells a story that stands as a testimony and lasts beyond a single lifetime. Each story is based on authentic letters and diaries that document firsthand accounts of the Holocaust so that their truths shall never be forgotten. Behind every name is a story.

Classroom materials to support the videos will be developed.
