To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Schindler’s List, we’re sharing a special edition Schindler’s List curriculum guide. This updated Schindler’s List Curriculum Guide for teachers includes a revised antisemitism lesson. This free teaching resource also includes lessons on Nazism in Germany, resistance during the Holocaust, the making of Schindler’s List, and more. Join us in celebrating this beloved Oscar-winning film and its enduring message of hope and humanity.

Banner across the top reads 30th Anniversary Teaching Guide. Text on the bottom half reads: Updated Antisemitism Lesson Now Available. Journeys in Film logo across the bottom.

Our new guide features a newly updated lesson: Antisemitism Today. In this lesson, students will learn about different forms antisemitism can take and how antisemitism is related to white supremacy. The lesson also includes an activity on hate crimes in the U.S where students assess and explore data. This lesson can be used in a range of learning areas: Social Studies, Civics, Media Literacy, Data-Focused Instruction, Advisory periods, ELA, etc. 

Our goal is to help educators teach about the increase in antisemitism using a powerful and relevant resource. We created our new antisemitism lesson to be adaptable. This new lesson can function as a standalone lesson that does not require viewing the film, although viewing it would enhance the experience. You can also pair this lesson with other films like Big Sonia, Francesco, and Navalny
