Participants will explore the voices of young people during the Holocaust - what factors contributed to their identity, what choices they made, and what students today can learn by studying the Holocaust to better understand ordinary people and human behavior. Using Facing History and Ourselves curriculum and unique exhibits of the Museum of Tolerance, including its newest Anne Frank exhibit, the program also features the opportunity to meet and listen to the testimony of a Holocaust survivor. Participants will leave this institute with a much deeper understanding of the Holocaust and the specific impact and voice of adolescents during that time. Everyone walks away with new insights, tools, and valuable classroom resources.
After this seminar, you will:
- Become part of the Facing History Educator Network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and online tools
- Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost.
