Abstract [en]

The public authority called The living history forum has the mission to promote knowledge

and understanding about human rights, tolerance and democracy in the Swedish society. They

have developed a website where they provide educational materials which often treat the

theme of the Holocaust during the Second World War. The aim of this study was to analyse

what knowledge the students in the Swedish high school can acquire by using this material.

The material consisted of five testimonies of survivors from the Holocaust and work camps

during the Second World War. The testimonies were short-recorded movies of witness talking

about their memories and experiences. Because of the testimonies oral form, a further aim

with this study was also to analyse what knowledge the oral story can contribute to in high

school students. Three questions were developed to answer the aims of the study:

• What pedagogical potential has the educational material ” Personliga berättelser kan

väcka starka känslor”, which is provided by The living history forum?

• Which knowledge can students acquire by using the oral story, in this case in the form

of testimonies, in history lessons?

• Which learning criteria in Lgy 11´s Värdegrund och uppdrag and History 1b´s

centrala innehåll” can the educational material fulfil?

The method I used to answer these questions was a didactic analyse. This means that I

answered the didactic questions who, what, why and how related to the material. To answer

the didactic questions I also did a simple content analysis of the testimonies of what they said

and how they said it. I then used two different theories to answer the didactic questions.

My results show that the educational material has a great pedagogical potential which shows

that students can learn to understand and feel historical empathy. This result is mostly based

on the fact that the testimonies are oral. But the results also show that it requires careful

considerations from the teacher before using the educational material, since one problem by

using the oral story in history lessons seems to be that the students forget about critical

thinking.
