The Judaism and Jewish life section of The Holocaust Explained has provided an overview of Jewish identities, beliefs and practices. You will have learned about the rich cultural variety within Jewish life.

The survivors interviewed for this site have given us an insight into their own pre-war life. In this section you have an opportunity to see, hear and learn from their testimonies about life as a child within pre-war Europe.

Reflect on the richness of the lives that existed before the Nazis came to power. Reflect on what was lost and what has been left behind.
