HMD Drama Lesson Plan

This lesson for secondary school students aged 13–16 or a youth theatre group uses drama techniques to explore the life stories of people who survived the Holocaust and the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. It includes drama activities based on Bertolt Brecht’s techniques, which protect the performers and allow the audience to learn about those who survived the Holocaust and a more recent genocide.
