Teachers TV:Holocaust - My Brother, the Resistance
A German lady remembers her brother, a WWII resistance member.
A Jewish woman born in Germany in the 1920s remembers her brother who was executed by the Gestapo for supporting the resistance movement. This short video can be used as a lesson starter in KS3 history. Anneliese Knoop Graf reads a letter written by her brother Willi Graf, just before he was executed. Willi was a member of the White Rose resistance group. Anneliese explains that she was forced to join the Bund Deutsche Mädel, a Nazi-run organisation for girls but dedicated much of the rest of her life to her brother's memory.
