The United States Congress established the Days of Remembrance as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust. Each year state and local governments, military bases, workplaces, schools, religious organizations, and civic centers host observances and remembrance activities for their communities. These events can occur during the Week of Remembrance, which runs from the Sunday before Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) through the following Sunday.
Our Holocaust Remembrance Collection includes the ETV documentary, Seared Souls: South Carolina Voices of the Holocaust in 10 segments, and the full, unedited interviews with South Carolinians who survived the Holocaust or served as liberators, and were willing to share their recollections, so that the ETV documentary could be created. The uncut interviews are under the series title of S.C. Voices: Lessons from the Holocaust.
Seared Souls: South Carolina Voices of the Holocaust: Trace the events of the Holocaust through the testimony of survivors who settled in South Carolina. Interviews are combined with dramatic archival footage for a powerful and moving record of the inhumanity that was experienced during the Holocaust.
S.C. Voices: Lessons from the Holocaust: Full interviews with South Carolinians who survived the Holocaust and those who liberated the concentration camps or witnessed the atrocities that took place.
The Holocaust Overview provides seven overview sections. Each provides a short summary of a topic related to the Holocaust. Teachers can summarize these mini-lectures for their students or share them with more able readers. The overviews are intended to supplement the information in students' textbooks on each topic and provide a background for teaching the lessons that follow each overview. A Holocaust timeline and glossary are also included.
The Holocaust Forum was a collaboration between the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust, ETV, and the South Carolina Department of Education.
