In the course of your studies or the studies of your students on World War II, is the Dunkirk evacuation part of your curriculum? That was an amazing and inspirational rescue by sea, but did you know even more people were rescued by boat from Manhattan Island in New York City after the 9-11 terrorist attacks in 2001? Take twelve minutes and watch the short documentary, “BOATLIFT, An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience,” narrated by Tom Hanks.
It’s a moving piece and makes me wish it didn’t take tragic events to bring people together and “bring out the hero” in everyday folks.
From a digital storytelling perspective, this video is very well crafted.
