Nazis, Monsters, Fairytales? Holocaust Plays for Younger Audiences
|Date||Tue, Mar 23, 3:30pm - 4:30pm|
Theatre is often used as a way of introducing the subject of the Holocaust to younger students, frequently offering a dynamic and more ‘personal’ way into the material. But what are ‘good’ plays for younger audiences? What are the benefits – and pitfalls – of ‘Holocaust plays’? And how can these play texts be used in the classroom?
Join the Holocaust Resource Center of Kean University and Holocaust theatre historian and educator Dr. Samantha Mitschke to discuss these key questions and more; explore examples of different Holocaust plays for younger audiences, with themes ranging from survivor experiences and rescue/resistance to Holocaust denial; and consider how plays can be used to complement teaching about the Holocaust.
PD hours will be provided.
