The Holocaust & Genocide Education Network (HGEN), formerly the Ohio Council on Holocaust & Genocide Education (OCHGE), is offering a monthly dialogue series in 2022-2023. Named for Ohio Holocaust educator Renate Frydman—a founding member of HGEN, the Director of the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center, and the author of Anschel’s Story—the Frydman dialogue series brings a range of topics to educators seeking to develop their knowledge around the teaching of the Holocaust and genocide.

On November 9, the anniversary of Kristallnacht (9 November 1938), Misty Ebinger will share teaching strategies to help us understand Kristallnacht more clearly, with an emphasis on the use of the Echoes and Reflections curriculum. Kristallnacht was a pivotal moment in the Holocaust and an essential event to include when teaching about it. Echoes and Reflections is a robust series of units and lessons designed to teach students about the Holocaust through the stories of survivors and their families. It is a joint project of the ADL, Shoah Foundation, and Yad Vashem, and can be used to teach the Holocaust over several days or several months.

Ms. Ebinger is a social studies teacher at New London High School in north central Ohio. She has taught various history courses for more than twenty years, including a Holocaust elective for ten years. Misty has taken graduate courses on the Holocaust, attended various conferences through the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and bore witness at Holocaust sites in Germany and Poland on teacher study tours. Most recently, she attended the Echoes and Reflections Advanced Learning Seminar at Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust Center in Jerusalem.

All presentations/discussions will be held on Zoom and will be one hour in length. Professional Development contact hours are available to teachers upon request.
