This workshop is a collaborative project of The Butterfly Project and Facing History and Ourselves, hosted by The Ronald Reagan Library Education Foundation.
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. 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.
