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.
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
IWitness gives students a sense of their own place in history and of the impact their words and actions can have on others. See below for just a few examples of the kinds of content you will find on IWitness. To engage your students, visit IWitness for full access to this free educational website.
Additional IWitness content collections, video testimonies, and related activities are now available on Discovery Education Streaming and Social Studies Techbook. Subscribers, login to begin using this content in your classroom.
