This lesson for secondary schools uses drama techniques to explore the life stories of people who survived the Holocaust and the Genocide in Rwanda. It provides drama activities pioneered by Bertolt Brecht, which help the audience to learn historical facts, and protect students from trying to re-enact traumatic situations.
One aspect of the theme for HMD 2017 - How can life go on? - was teaching about living, ensuring that we know about the lives of those who were persecuted and ensuring that their culture lives on. Our video tutorial teaches you a traditional Rwandan dance and you might want to use this as an activity for any age group.
