Grounded in the study of Jewish ethics and values, this seminar examines the range of choices that led to the failure of democracy in Germany and ultimately to the persecution of millions of Jews and other targeted groups. Participants will investigate the connection between Jewish history and identity, the moral questions inherent in everyday life, and how we as individuals and members of groups can make a difference in the world today.

Discover literacy-based teaching strategies, classroom activities, and multimedia resources that support the reading of challenging texts, encourage critical analysis of primary and secondary sources, and promote ethical reflection
Learn multidisciplinary pedagogical approaches for teaching a course on the Holocaust that is grounded in the study of Jewish ethics and values
