What better way to learn about history than to see it? Welcome to America's Deaf community circa 1930. Charles Krauel was a Deaf film maker in the days before home video recorders. Krauel had the foresight to know how important it was to document ASL, schools for the Deaf, travels and important social events of the day. This video would be wonderful for secondary students and adults, both deaf and hearing. I found the video to be entertaining and educational. It is so rare to see such early footage of the Deaf community. A real treat.
