Everyone has a story to tell.

Discovery Education is proud to partner with USC Shoah Foundation to provide educators and students with access to IWitness, which features nearly 1,500 testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides.

Help your students find their voice—and be rewarded.

Through the IWitness Video Challenge, students will find inspiration from the voices in IWitness to create positive change in their own community. More than $10,000 in prizing from Ford Motor Co. will be awarded to students, teachers and schools who submit winning video essays about their experience. The standards-based, engaging IWitness Video Challenge activity will provide guidance from start to finish, and no prior film knowledge is needed to participate. Get Started
