Carlsbad High’s Dachau Fieldtrip

by The Editors on April 19, 2008

Students in Doug Green’s broadcast journalism class at Carlsbad High made a Holocaust pilgrimage to Germany’s Dachau prison camp to make a documentary film.

Taking turns with three high-definition video cameras, the students captured about 25 hours of footage, including their own thoughts about the Holocaust. . . .Students will weave footage from Dachau with their interviews to produce a 45-minute documentary called “Never Again,” to be released on DVD this fall.

We’re sure this film will be interesting, however, we can say that Holocaust documentaries aren’t something we look forward to seeing.

I am the librarian at St. Francis ofAssisi School in Vista. I am interested in obtaining one of the videos for middle school when you have it completed. We have been teaching Holocaust education at St. Francis for about 10 years and one of the survivors featured in your video, Yaja Boren, speaks with our students yearly before their trip to the Tolerance Museum. I think the video would be a valuable addition to our Holocaust resources. Thank You, Kay O’Connell 760-630-7960
