we share the same sky : The podcast

Now Streaming

curriculum release date : November 11, 2019


I remember as a child, my grandmother taking hold of my hand and circling my palm with her pointer finger. It would tickle, but I let her continue. “Life will give you callouses,” she told me. “But, with each one, your skin will become thicker.”

Growing up, I knew my grandmother’s story. At least a version of it. I knew she was a Holocaust survivor. I knew she lost her whole family in the war. And, I knew she was a refugee, but as a kid I didn’t have the language nor the maturity to understand what that meant. I took the history for granted. But that is what grandchildren do — we accept the stories that came before us as normal… 

The We Share the Same Sky Podcast was produced for USC Shoah Foundation. It is the organization’s first foray into podcasting. Starting November 11th, educators will find a range of companion educational resources on USC Shoah Foundation’s website, including classroom content from USC Shoah Foundation’s IWitness platform as well as Echoes & Reflections, USC’s Holocaust education program offered in partnership with ADL and Yad Vashem.

We Share the Same Sky is available for streaming and download on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and most podcast streaming services and directly on this website.
