I most certainly believe that these pictures shoud be shown in classrooms. They are so real and they seem to tell a story of the person killed. It tells a story about their life and how it tragically had to end in the manner it did. No words can really explain how they make you feel. it made me want to go out and reasearch more about them and escpically the Duluth Lynchings, becasue Minnesota is my home state. It is hard to believe that such hate was one day prevelant in their socities. They are a great learning tool in the way that the students can actually see the image, rather that imagining it. I think it hits home harder and real human emotion comes out and makes the student relate better!

I agree with you Jene. Educating is indeed about truth. Truth should be told. And truth is about reality.
Reality should be shown to kids. Not to make them feel guilty, not to make them feel angry. Just to make them feel human and connected to mankind and therefore to each other.
Those terrible pictures that illustrate the terrible truth must be seen and their comment must be heard.
As an English teacher in France, I believe all my pupils (15 to 20) should see Without Sanctuary. I have added its link on my blog /bilien.blogspot.com/
I did add some warning, some PA, but i hope they will watch it.
And i hope to find an equivalent for so many subjects on the web: "The Algerian events" as they were called, "Indochina" as they used to call South -East Asia, Collaboration during WWII and so on and so forth....
BRAVO Sincerely. Elibi

Teaching about lynching is as important as teaching about our democratic institutions. Lynching has been a challenge to the very existence of democracy wherever it has been practiced. In the US the legacy of violence that racism represents has to be taught as a constitutive element of the country´s history and moral fabric. Teachers might want to consider to tell their students that the existence of the death penalty in 38 states of the Union is part of that legacy. If they do not think so, then they need to tell why there´s such a disproportionate number of Blacks who have been executed throughout the country´s history to this day.

as i viewed the movie i could not help but think what would go through another mans mind to do this to another man?
how can men put to death another human being without a second thought.
these men and women minds, created by God, was ended by other men and women without a second through even as if they enjoyed it. they reminded me of a crowd of Hitlers. look at the faces of the crowds....
when i get myself together i will let me kids watch this..its important for them to know man in all form.
Mr Allen you did a great job!!!!

These images should definitely be used in the classroom as long as they are accompanied by questions and discussions. I wish that I had been exposed to these types of photographic materials when I was in high school because they offer a different perspective than those written in most high school text books. I am a college student using 20th century photographic images as part of a history research paper, and images such as these are a striking reminder of important & disturbing elements in America's history.
