Special Things

This workshop explores artefacts and their meaning.

There are many objects featured in the exhibition and in the survivors’ stories (e.g. toys, passports, identity papers, prayer books, wooden bowls, eating utensils and items of clothing). It asks students to consider that mundane things may be very special and that this ‘specialness’ is not always synonymous with value. Young people will be encouraged to identify special things in their own lives. They will learn how special things in the Through Our Eyes exhibition may provide evidence about the Holocaust and recognise that for many people special things are linked to their identity, heritage and belonging.
