Duration   1h

From European concentration camps to American incarceration camps, actions that persecuted and separated a group deemed an enemy of the state or at the very least, suspicious, was a strategy used by the Allies and the Axis powers alike. Join Echoes & Reflections Program Manager Jen Goss and Annie Evans from New American History as they share resources and educational strategies on how to discuss these dark periods of history and what we can learn from them, including how the impact of these actions continue to shape the Jewish and Japanese-American communities today. In light of a terrifying rise in antisemitism and anti-AAPI hate, it is critically important to include these resources in your classroom and utilize the responsible and effective techniques presented to make connections between these two experiences, while honoring the distinct characteristics of both. This webinar accompanies Echoes & Reflections Units 2 & 4: Antisemitism and The Ghettos.

Join Echoes & Reflections for this webinar to learn how to access the VFT and the aligned educational resources from USC Shoah Foundation and Echoes & Reflections.
