In this lesson, students will analyse objects from the Sydney Jewish Museum’s collection, as well as film clips, in order to learn more about camp uniforms and those who were forced to wear them as internees during the Holocaust.
These are uniforms worn by Polish political survivor Wladzimierz Klunicki and by Jewish survivor George Grojnowski.
Students will piece together the experiences of these two survivors, considering the importance of multiple sources in the construction of history.
