Reclaiming the Identity of Youth Lost During the Holocaust

Reclaiming the Identity of Youth Lost During the Holocaust

This workshop is a collaborative project of The Butterfly Project and Facing History and Ourselves.


How do we understand and honor children's lives taken during the Holocaust? Participants will experience a study of the Holocaust focused on youth voices, using the fully revised, edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior. This is the San Diego introduction of this multimedia resource. Participants will learn about the world-wide initiatives of The Butterfly Project and concrete projects their students can do to make connections with stories of individuals lost during the Holocaust. This workshop is particularly relevant for teachers of The Diary of Anne Frank and/or other Holocaust memoir.


In this evening workshop, participants will:

  • Engage with classroom-ready multimedia resources
  • Get a sequenced unit to prepare students to participate in The Butterfly Project and learn how to build a customized unit that meets your curriculum objectives
  • Discover new teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully
  • Get a Butterfly Project Starter Kit and create your own butterfly!
  • Receive a confirmation of attendance

After this workshop 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 multimedia
