Ballis, Anja (2018): “With a little antisemitism, you could live!”. A case study on framing a Holocaust survivor’s living testimony. In: Theo-Web : Zeitschrift für Religionspädagogik, Vol. 17, No. 1: pp. 50-61

This article presents a case study of the encounter of a Holocaust survivor with students. Abba Naor (born 1928 in Kovno, Lithuania) has been visiting school classes for many years to tell his story. Little is known about how Holocaust survivors interact with young people, especially in view of the imminent end of contemporary witnesses. With a view to the framing of his testimony, the aim of this study is to reflect the goals he pursues, the institutional peculiarities that become effective, and the formal and content-related characteristics that frame his narration. The contribution closes with remarks on contemporary witness talks in schools.
