Gathering and using evidence to make a difference
- Choose the photograph that you feel best illustrates a message that you would want other people to know.
- Describe the photograph in your own words.
- Explain what you would like others to learn from the photograph.
- How might the photograph have been used to alert others to what was happening in Germany?
Choose one of the following activities:
Alert the national conscience
Create a headline and caption that you think would effectively explain the photograph if it were to appear in a prominent American newspaper.
Choose a policymaker (e.g., a Congress person, the President of the United States, a State Department official, etc.) to whom you would like to send the photograph along with an accompanying letter. What would you like this person to know and do? Write several paragraphs of the letter.
Stimulate worldwide action
Think of ways the photograph could be used to raise world consciousness. Which organizations or people do you think it would be important to reach in order to effect global change?
