This webinar will explore the new Voices of the Holocaust resource, a 3-lesson mini-unit on the impact of the Holocaust and World War II on Jewish communities in North Africa. The intersecting histories of the Holocaust and wartime North Africa illuminate complex ways in which colonialism and fascism impacted Jewish communities across Morocco, Algeria, Libya, and Tunisia. These lessons bring in voices that are often left out of Holocaust and WWII curricula, opening an opportunity for students to gain a more complete understanding of the range of experiences, choices, and impacts associated with this period in history.

Participants will gain an understanding of the ways World War II affected Jewish communities in North Africa and how educators can integrate these new lessons with their classroom Holocaust units.
