Holocaust Education in Desperate Times

Simone Schweber, Goodman Professor of Education and Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison

Schweber will discuss Holocaust education and the multiple contexts within which it is positioned including state and national education policy contexts, the global contexts of climate change and the rising appeal of authoritarian populism, surges of antisemitism and a seemingly renewed acceptability of racism. Within these contexts, she will describe what we hope Holocaust education can achieve, what research bears out on what it does, and what we can be realistically optimistic about in terms of its future. Considering new technology and old arguments about its possibilities, her talk will include ideas for Holocaust education in the pandemic-world of on-line learning.
