On Monday, May 22, HALB eighth graders premiered their original Names, Not Numbers© documentary. Names, Not Numbers is a unique Holocaust oral history documentary project in which the students collect oral histories of survivors and create a film based on the experience.

Throughout the year, students had sessions related to Holocaust education, interviewing techniques and videography. After all their hard and important work, the students’ parents, grandparents, teachers, and peers had the opportunity to watch the film.

It was an incredibly moving and educational experience for everyone. Additionally, the documentary will be archived in Yad Vashem and the National Library of Israel.
