Develop students’ empathy by sharing Muguette Myers’ moving story about her life before, during and after the Holocaust.
Through our immersive audio app, students are plunged into the tumultuous past of Europe and France during the first half of the 20th century. By listening to audio excerpts that alternate between historical context and Muguette Myers’ survivor testimony, students learn about the successive stages of the Holocaust in Europe and France.
By referring to the provided poster and by interacting with the app as they speak through a mic, students become actively engaged in listening to Muguette’s testimony and develop their sense of empathy.
