Hebrew Academy of Long Beach takes part in Names, Not Numbers


Hebrew Academy of Long Beach eighth grade students heard from a few speakers, including Head of School Adam Englander, as they prepared for the school year long Names, Not Numbers project, where students collect oral histories of Holocaust survivors and create a documentary film based on their work.

As part of the project, there are sessions related to Holocaust education, interviewing techniques and videography. The project culminates with a dinner where the students' film is shown; it is then archived in Yad Vashem, the world Holocaust remembrance center in Jerusalem, and the National Library of Israel, that is also in Jerusalem.
