Meet Kiril Feferman
The four-year project will identify and develop resources, activities and pathways into IWitness that will be appropriate and effective for teaching the Holocaust and other topics at Jewish day schools of all denominations.
George Topas describes how he prayed with his tefillin (phylacteries) every morning in the camp barracks before he was sent out to forced labor.
Kiril Feferman’s research topic is rarely studied now, but that may change after his fellowship at USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research this fall.
