Stereotyping: Roles People Play

NMFHRP Visits Carlos Gilbert Elementary School in Santa Fe

Regina introduces background material to students

On April 13, 2005, Regina and Sue traveled to Santa Fe to do a presentation on stereotyping.  Materials, involving photos taken of people who lived during the time of the Holocaust, were taken from a teacher kit from the Imperial War Museum in London, England.  Students were asked to guess whether the photos were of victims, perpetrators, helpers, or bystanders.  The adage, "You can't judge a book by its cover," certainly was appropriate.

Students try to get meaning from the photos

Teacher Kathy Shapiro requested the lesson from NMFHRP
