We Share The Same Sky: The Stories of Unsung Heroes
February 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm MST
Documentary storyteller Rachael Cerrotti, will tell the story of the rescue of the Danish Jews through the experience of her grandmother, Hana Dubova, who was the only Holocaust survivor in her family. Hana escaped Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia for Denmark in 1939 at the age of 14 and Rachael has spent over a decade retracing her history. Using photography, video, audio and personal storytelling, Rachael will talk about how teaching history with modern media and through a contemporary lens can empower students to reflect on their own individual actions and family histories.
Rachael is the author of a book and narrative podcast, both by the name We Share The Same Sky. The award-winning podcast, produced in partnership with USC Shoah Foundation, comes with classroom-ready resources developed by Echoes & Reflections.
Following Rachael’s talk, guest are welcome to tour the exhibit, Holocaust by Bullets also in the Hayden Library
