Pre-service teachers tour Holocaust museum, meet survivor Mike Jacobs

On April 19, 2012, Yom HaShoah, a day for remembering the tragedy of the Holocaust, Dr. Carol Revelle's content literacy class visited the Dallas Holocaust Museum, the culminating event for a model text set on the Holocaust.


The pre-service teachers toured the museum and met Mike Jacobs, a Holocaust survivor from Poland. Jacobs' parents and siblings were all murdered at Treblinka. Jacobs was sent to a work camp and then to Auschwitz-Birkenau. His memoir, Holocaust Survivor: Mike Jacobs' Triumph over Tragedy recounts the five years he spent in ghettos and concentration camps before his liberation in May of 1945.
