About Foundation for Documentary Projects
The Foundation for Documentary Projects was created to produce educational documentaries and accompanying curricula about important social and historical issues.
The Foundation was created after the success of Laura Bialis’ project: TAK FOR ALT—Survival of a Human Spirit, a documentary about Holocaust survivor and Civil Rights activist Judy Meisel. The film and its accompanying curriculum are now being used in public and private schools across the United States to teach the Holocaust, tolerance, and civil rights.
Many states have used the materials in district-wide Holocaust education initiatives. TAK FOR ALT has been presented to teachers and educators at the Yad Vashem Conference for Educators, and it is listed as an additional resource in the new Holocaust curriculum published by The Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation.
