Blue Tattoo Educational Unit

We invite teachers to download the Blue Tattoo Film PowerPoint classroom unit  for grades 7-12.  It is intended to supplement your existing Holocaust related curriculum. The presentation includes background information, discussion topics/assignments and an edited version of the film, "Blue Tattoo: Dina's Story, Joe's Song. " 

 BLUE TATTOO: Dina's Story, Joe's Song

The film Blue Tattoo: Dina’s Story, Joe’s Song  explores the relationship between Holocaust survivor Dina Jacobson and folksinger/songwriter, Joe Crookston.  Through a series of events, their paths crossed, a friendship was formed  and a song was written.  Together they developed a bond that would help keep the memory of the Holocaust alive and the lessons of humanity relevant to this and future generations.
