Read about Zak Kolar's project on Yom Hashoah with your students. Zak Kolar created an online database of names of people who died in the Holocaust. His goal is to remember the Holocaust victims as individuals, not statistics. In the accompanying lesson, students will look at photographs of pre-war Eastern European Jewish children and write about their personalities, families, likes, and dislikes in order to see them as individuals. Students will also learn about the Mourner’s Kaddish prayer and why it is recited in memory of the deceased. Finally, students will visit Zak’s website and choose the name of a Holocaust victim to remember.
