The Jewish Holocaust Centre is an institution dedicated to the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945.
We consider the finest memorial to all victims of racist policies to be an educational program which aims to combat anti-Semitism, racism and prejudice in the community and foster understanding between people.
As part of the museum redevelopment we wish to create a ‘kiosk’ where visitors can access survivor testimony about the Warsaw Ghetto and the Jewish uprising that occurred there. We also plan to create a documentary film for the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in April 2018.
JHC has a collection of survivor testimony which includes about 36 testimonies from Jews living in Warsaw Ghetto around the time of the uprising. A range of clips have been identified where survivors talk about the lead up to the Uprising as well as the events of the uprising.
Intake: Summer B
Duration: Flexible, to be determined with successful student
Required Discipline: History, Holocaust and genocide studies, Human rights, Jewish studies
The intern will need to become familiar with the history of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising for the project. The project has two parts:
(1) For the documentary, help create a meaningful narrative incorporating survivor testimony clips. This will involve writing a script for a narration and choosing and ordering appropriate testimony from the survivors. Additionally the intern would need to identify photographic resources to include and suggest the appropriate placement of such photographs.
(2) For the museum kiosk, the intern could identify the most appropriate testimonies and help create short pieces for each of these survivors.
The clips we have earmarked for inclusion essentially focus on the following themes: Conditions in the ghetto/Resistance activities/Nazi atrocities/Jewish self-help and escape.
In working on this project the intern should consider the bigger issues of the challenges of using survivor testimony and perpetrator photographs in portraying the past.
Applications close November 10.
