A virtual learning experience, utilizing USC Shoah Foundation’s IWitness educational platform and accompanying educational materials, aims to spark an important discussion about complicity, propaganda, and responsibility through the lens of the unprecedented film, Final Account. Final Account does not aim to retell the history of the Nazi era or the Holocaust, but rather to depict how these people relate to this history and reflect on their own role more than 60 years later.

Honoring Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month: Japanese American Internment

Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 providing US military with the power to relocate people of Japanese descent- mostly American citizens- from their homes to centers in remote areas of the country.

Annual Summer Institute for Educators: Resistance During the Holocaust
Between 1933 and 1945, a variety of groups, resisted the Nazi regime, both in Germany and in German-occupied territory. Resistance usually refers to a physical act of armed revolt. During the Holocaust, it also encompassed partisan activity; the smuggling of messages, food, and weapons; sabotage; and actual military engagement. Resistance may also be thought of as willful disobedience, such as continuing to practice religious and cultural traditions in defiance of the rules or creating art, music, and poetry inside ghettos and concentration camps. For many, simply maintaining their humanity, personal integrity, dignity, and sense of civilization in the face of Nazi attempts to dehumanize and degrade them was an act of spiritual resistance.
