January 25, 2012

Anne Frank and the seven other members of the Secret Annexe were in hiding for 2 years. Because they were hiding in a working office building, they had to be absolutely silent during business hours. This meant no coughing, talking, laughing, music, moving around the attic, running water, or flushing a toilet. We are going to experience what this felt like for one full minute.

How did being absolutely silent make you feel? Did the time move quickly, or did it seem like longer than a minute? How would you feel if you had to live this way for 2 years?

Warsaw Ghetto Images


The old cliche "A picture is worth a thousand words" is going to be put to the test today. You are to take a look at several images of the Warsaw Ghetto. These are artistic renderings of the people who lived in the ghetto during that time. In spite of being black and white, they are enormously powerful, detailed, and moving images. It will be your job to give the proper language, or thousand words (although not quite a thousand) to these pictures. You will probably find that while these images are silent, they are actually saying so much.
