MTA Seniors Travel to Poland

Every year MTA seniors participate in the “Names, Not Numbers©” project created 19 years ago by Tova Rosenberg. To date, over 8,000 students have successfully interviewed and filmed about 6,000 survivors and WWII veterans, throughout the U.S., Canada and Israel.  Over 850 classes have produced full length documentary films that have been accepted into the archives of Holocaust museums and universities.

The project transforms the teachings of the Holocaust by taking it beyond traditional classroom walls and turning it into interactive, creative and empowering educational lessons.

The  participants from MTA take the unique additional step of traveling to Poland to learn about the Holocaust on the very ground on which it occurred. Accompanied by MTA Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Michael Taubes, the talmidim experienced something they will never forget and they have gained an insight that will help them in creating their final “Names, Not Numbers©” documentary, preserving the stories of survivors so that the world will never forget.
