An old-fashioned photo-camera and photo-film

Educational lesson “LOOK INTO HISTORY THROUGH PHOTO” (for students of grades 5–8)

29 November 2019

Audience: students of grades 5–8.

Participants conduct historical research, analyze photographs as historical sources, and work with the Holodomor witnesses’ testimonies. The lesson helps students understand how the Soviet government committed genocide in 1932–1933.

When choosing a role, teenagers perform different tasks, all involved in group work.

The basis of the lesson are discussion, analysis of sources, and summarization of new information. As a result, students “write” a comprehensive story about the genocide of the Ukrainian people. One of the main goals of the educational activity is to encourage students to explore their family photo archive and their family history during the Holodomor.
