Virtual Workshop: Teaching the Holocaust through the Experiences of Children

Event Description

A free virtual workshop on teaching the Holocaust through the experiences of children will be held virtually on Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2022, from 4:30-5:30 p.m. This professional development seminar for educators is presented under the auspices of the Herbert and Leonard Littman Families Holocaust Resource Center (HRC) and the Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life at Rutgers University.

Holocaust historian Dr. Joanna Sliwa will discuss her new book, Jewish Childhood in Krakow: A Microhistory of the Holocaust, which explores Holocaust history from the perspective of Jewish children. With its focus on children—the symbol of hope and future for the Jews, and a threat to the Nazi racial program—the book sheds light on what this age group witnessed and how the Holocaust affected young Jews. All attendees will receive a free copy of Sliwa’s book. The program will be moderated by Colleen Tambuscio, pedagogical consultant.

Advance registration is required by Jan. 26; applications available at BildnerCenter.Rutgers.edu.

To register, one must be a current 6-12 grade teacher with at least one-year teaching experience, or currently be pursuing a Master of Education degree. Teachers who are new to this topic are encouraged to apply.
