We Share the Same Sky


USC Shoah Foundation’s podcast We Share The Same Sky, created by Rachael Cerrotti—granddaughter of Holocaust survivor Hana Dubova—compels students to feel the relevance of “ancient history” in their lives.

Cerrotti joins Hana’s journey of survival during the Holocaust with her own quest for understanding. Along the way, listeners will meet individuals directly connected to Hana and Rachael’s stories, as well as Moudi, a 27-year-old Syrian refugee rebuilding his life in Copenhagen, Denmark. Alternatingly, these stories use history and current events to help students delve deeply into themes including discrimination and dehumanization, the importance of being an ally, the impact of physical and metaphorical walls, and how to find hope and redemption in tragic circumstances. The podcast’s episodes deliver important historical accounts and life lessons that are significant beyond the classroom.

The resource contains the poscast as well as additional clips and teaching resources from USC Shoa Foundation and Echoes and Reflections

the podcast is appropriate for older students, grades 10-12
