Activity 1 - People in the Ghettos and Camps

(A) Individually or in a group, make a list of the things you think are important for maintaining one's humanity in conditions of war and imprisonment.

(B) Look through the art works. Find works that reflect some of the human rights or requirements you listed in (A). Note the way different artists in different places depicted these things.

(C) Use the art works you have chosen as the starting point for an essay on the difficulties people faced in ghettos or camps and the ways they tried to overcome them. You can draw on the biographies, histories and other study resources.
