About This Lesson

Students use primary source documents to piece together the story of Victoria Confino, an immigrant who lived in 97 Orchard Street almost one hundred years ago. Students examine a variety of primary sources in order to explore Victoria’s immigrant experience. They use their findings to write a biography of her life. Through this investigation, students learn how primary source documents can help us understand people, places, and events from the past.
