After Liberation: Photographs as Historical Sources
Workshop for School Groups about Jewish Daily Life and New Beginnings in DP Camps
This workshop teaches students methods for critically interpreting photographs as historical sources using images from displaced persons’ camps as examples.
Around 250,000 European Jews who had been liberated from the concentration camps and forced labor camps were accommodated in displaced persons’ camps between 1945 and 1949. Although very few of them wanted to remain in Europe, a diverse cultural and social life emerged in the camps. The students are given a historical introduction to the topic in the axes of the Libeskind Building, then analyze photos from Jewish displaced persons’ camps in small groups.
