On Tuesday night, students in the Names, Not Numbers program, along with their families, MTA faculty, and the interviewed survivors and members of their families, traveled to YU’s Schenk shul to celebrate the class’ accomplishments and view the video documentaries that were produced by the members of the class. The dinner celebrated the conclusion of a year-long course that required deft interviewing skills, mastery of the history of the Holocaust, and hours of intensive editing. The video included reflections by the members of the class at different points during the year, highlights from the course’s recent trip to Poland, and the feature presentation, the actual interviews themselves. Everyone who participated in the program felt a great sense of accomplishment knowing that their documentaries will serve as a crucial piece of oral history, and the dinner marked a fitting end to an outstanding year of interviews, trips, and history.
