The Future of Holocaust Education
|Date||Mon, Apr 19, 1:00pm - 2:00pm|
Join the Anti-Defamation League's Central Division series will present "The Future of Holocaust Education,” featuring experts from Echoes & Reflections, a leader in the field of Holocaust education that utilizes unparalleled expertise and resources from three world leaders in Holocaust education; the USC Shoah Foundation: Institute for Visual History and Education; Yad Vashem: The World Holocaust Remembrance Center; and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
Extremism is dominating the news, Holocaust denial and antisemitism are at record highs, and the topic of Holocaust Education is once again front and center, not just in our schools, but in the public square. We are losing an entire generation of first-hand survivors at a time when hearing their stories couldn’t be more important. Whether, and to what extent, we keep a doorway to the lessons of the Shoah open and accessible to all people is a direct measure of how likely we, as a society, are to let the past repeat itself.
Echoes & Reflections is dedicated to reshaping the way that teachers and students understand, process, and navigate the world through the events of the Holocaust, viewing it as more than a historical event—as part of the larger human story. In that context, the panelists will tackle questions regarding the relevance, immediacy and challenge of making Holocaust Education synonymous with civic education in today’s schools.
