Location Online via Zoom
Date Thu, May 23, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Duration   1h

Led by award-winning writer, podcaster, educator, and curator Rachael Cerrotti, commemorate Jewish American Heritage Month with a look at how memory is an essential aspect of identity. Using photographs, video, audio, interviews, and classroom resources from Echoes & Reflections, Rachael brings her personal story through her flagship project, We Share The Same Sky, to teach about Holocaust history and the lessons learned through tracing her grandmother’s story. Her new project, Along the Seam, delves into the complex and oftentimes paradoxical lessons uncovered by exploring one’s family histories and how that can shape how an individual views themselves and their role in the collective community. Through her expertise and lived experiences, educators will gain valuable perspective and resources to bring to their classroom to help their students analyze the history of the Holocaust and the impact of memory on our society.
