Anne Frank for iPad and Nook reimagines The Diary of a Young Girl for the digital age

Anne Frank for iPad and Nook reimagines The Diary of a Young Girl for the digital age | Holocaust | Scoop.it

"The story of Anne Frank is one of the most well-known first-hand accounts to emerge from the Second World War, one telling in intimate detail the persecution suffered by Jewish people in Europe.

 

The Diary of a Young Girl has been the basis of numerous plays and movies, documenting Anne Frank’s experiences holed-up and hidden in German-occupied Amsterdam.

 

And now, the story of Anne Frank has been brought well and truly into the 21st century digital age, with an interactive, multimedia-centric book for iPad and Nook, available in the UK only for now, with the US to follow shortly."

I attended an outstanding workshop on Holocaust Education sponsored by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and was introduced to these excellent teaching materials that they have online. The Holocaust can be taught with a goal of making connections with present day prejudice, persecution and crimes of hate that mar this world. Collectively, the geographic legacies of genocide are long-lasting, and must be remembered.  For some local sources for the Holocaust Education and Resource Center in Rhode Island, see: http://hercri.org

I would recommend this text for use in other teachers' classrooms as well as my mine because it has allot of information regarding the Holocaust.  I would use it and recommend other teachers use it to provide students access to a large amount of primary sources in the from of artifacts and survivor accounts.  There also are other texts such as videos to facilitate student learning.

Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust by Belzberg Architects

Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust by Belzberg Architects | Holocaust | Scoop.it

From the architect. 

The new building for the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust (LAMOTH) is located within a public park, adjacent to the existing Los Angeles Holocaust Memorial.  Paramount to the design strategy is the integration of the building into the surrounding open, park landscape. The museum is submerged into the ground allowing the park’s landscape to continue over the roof of the structure.  Existing park pathways are used as connective elements to integrate the pedestrian flow of the park with the new circulation for museum visitors.

By maintaining the material pallet of the park and extending it onto the museum, the hues and textures of concrete and vegetation blend with the existing material palette of Pan Pacific Park. Designed and constructed with sustainable systems and materials, the LAMOTH building is on track to receive a LEED Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council.

Interior/exterior, un edificio que se posa con delicadeza en el parque que lo acoge. Si te gusta el exterior, te encantará el interior. Con formas rotundas y limpias, y unas sorprendentes ventanas, un edificio que nos devuelve a el "paseo arquitectónico" del Corbu. Además un edificio que ha recibido la medalla de oro LEED.
