Teaching Materials

Jewish History and Culture in Class

Students from Hamburg have produced a wide variety of video clips on Jewish history, culture and the present in their city. These include films about well-known people or unknown stumbling stone biographies, about Jewish dietary laws or the comparison of different houses of worship, about Jewish cemeteries or current encounter projects.

In order to be able to use these videos outside of the project weeks, we provide a didactic guide as well as worksheets for various video contributions. They are intended to support teachers in integrating the films into their lessons and, at the same time, to encourage them to use other video clips in their teaching. So far the worksheets are in German only.

Links and Literature

There is a wide variety of publications and online offerings with information on Jewish history and culture. But which websites, books or brochures are suitable for the preparation and implementation of project weeks on Jewish history and culture in Hamburg? We have compiled a list of websites, teaching materials and further literature that we can recommend for working with students to prepare and follow up on project weeks with the Geschichtomat or your own project ideas on Jewish Hamburg.

Glossary

During the project weeks, young people repeatedly come across terms in texts, documents and conversations that they do not know or do not understand correctly. We have therefore compiled a small glossary. The terms explained here from the area of Jewish culture and religion, but also from Nazi history, should help the students to understand texts better and to be able to prepare interviews more easily.
