Craig’’s movie Defiance in online curriculum to teach about HolocaustJanuary 13th, 2009 - 5:11 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, January 13 (ANI): Daniel Craigs Defiance has drawn attention of New York City schools who have decided to use the 2008 war film to teach students about the Holocaust.
Holocaust is the term generally used to describe the genocide of around six million European Jews during World War II, as part of deliberate extermination planned and executed by Adolf Hitlers Nazi regime.
The film depicts the story of four Jewish brothers from Poland who escape from the Nazis and fight back to rescue fellow Jews.
The Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation urged schools to use the movie as part of the online curriculum.
“Very often students, when studying this history, think of Jews as being very passive, Contactmusic quoted teacher Alice Braziller, at Manhattans Satellite Academy High School, as telling the New York Daily News.
“I don”t think you should teach the Holocaust unless you”re also talking about resistance, she added. (ANI)
