The Heart from Auschwitz learning activity focuses on a symbol of spiritual resistance. A group of women at the Auschwitz concentration camp made a heart-shaped card. This learning activity, which incorporates both introspective and creative elements, concludes the study of the Holocaust on a positive note. To complete the activity, students create their own heart-shaped booklet.
