The FHM’s IWitness Lesson: Walter Loebenberg – Refugee Experiences during the Holocaust

The Florida Holocaust Museum and USC Shoah Foundation have joined efforts to create digital classroom resources built around video testimony of local Holocaust Survivors on an educational platform called IWitness. IWitness is a free educational website offering audiovisual testimonies for use across the curriculum. Through our partnership, lessons are built based on video testimonies of Holocaust survivors who settled in Florida. This activity was created by The FHM’s Director of Education and Research, Ursula Szczepinska. It provides students with information about refugee experiences during the Holocaust as seen through the lens of the Loebenberg Family.
