Date Thu, Jun 27, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Duration   1h

When the Allies invaded mainland Europe on D-Day, June 6, 1944, five million Jews had already been murdered in the Holocaust. Join Program Manager Jennifer Goss to explore the options, decisions, and actions taken by the Allies to defeat Nazi Germany and liberate Europe. Investigate the priorities of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the attempts to save Jewish lives in the war effort and through other operations, such as the War Refugee Board. Utilizing primary resources, including visual history testimony from American soldiers, explore the impact that confronting the Nazi atrocities had on the American soldiers who participated in the liberation of the camps. By adding nuance and complexity to the American war effort, educators will be better equipped to challenge their students to think critically about the decisions made by the Allies during World War II.

This webinar connects to the Units 5 and 6 on the Echoes & Reflections website.
