The Story of Three Rings: A Memoir of Dana Schwartz

Students in the 2016 Digital Storytelling Workshop at Harvard-Westlake brought to the screen the personal testimony of Holocaust Survivor Dana Schwartz and her family's experiences in the Lvov Ghetto. The short film has won more than 15 film festival awards, including CineYouth Chicago International Film Festival (Best Documentary) and at the All American High School Film Festival (Best Animation and Finalist for Best Overall).


In our film workshops, students meet with Survivors and learn their personal histories, visit the Museum for customized tours of the galleries, and work with mentors in animation and live action to create video testimonies and short films based on Survivors' life stories.
