Perpetrators, Bystanders & Upstanders

FOR ALL MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN CHARLESTON, DORCHESTER & BERKELEY COUNTIES

MISSION STATEMENT: 
This year, The Holocaust Creative Arts Competition invites students to ponder the choices that people made when witnessing persecution during the Nazi era. From heroes such as Sophie Scholl and the White Rose resistance movement to students who harassed their Jewish classmates with impunity, reactions to Nazi power varied widely. Most individuals chose passive conformity. Our resource page, www. jewishcharleston.org/remember, features a short PowerPoint introduction and suggestions of specific resources featuring perpetrators, upstanders, and bystanders during the Holocaust. All entries must include one citation.
