HIDDEN CHILDREN IN CATHOLIC FRANCE: BETWEEN TRAUMA AND NORMALCY
Our webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
During the Holocaust, Jewish children of all ages were at times hidden among other students within Catholic institutions as seen in films such as Au Revoir Les Enfants. Their lives were completely uprooted as they were placed in a religious environment completely different from what they knew. Eliot Nidam Orvieto, Yad Vashem researcher, will discuss the challenges and coping strategies of these children and their rescuers living under the threat of discovery.
