Driving Question  What's this?

Does History Repeat Itself?

Have you ever been interested in being on the radio? In this workshop you will have the opportunity to express your own opinions and be heard. Through writing and recording an audio commentary, you will answer the question: Does History Repeat Itself? You will examine the roles of upstanders and bystanders during the Holocaust and relate them to another historical or present day event such as the Palestine/Israeli conflict, Post 9-11 Internment, Japanese Internment during WWII, Civil War in Central America, Genocide in Armenia, Cambodia, Rwanda and Darfur (Sudan), Immigration Issues, Racial Profiling, or another related issue that interests you. In addition, you will create a unique visual art piece related to your commentary. Your recordings and visual pieces will be broadcast and displayed on the night of the exhibition. You might even have the opportunity to have your commentary aired on a local radio station.
