Life After Death: Exploring the Aftermath of the Holocaust   View Event

  • Wednesday, June 28, 2023 at 2:00pm - 3:00pm
  • Calendar:   Workshops
  • Location:  Zoom
  • Description:  Liberation is often seen as a time of celebration, but survivors of the Holocaust faced emotional and physical challenges as they struggled to return to life. Survivors who were confronted with the destruction of their old lives set out to create new ones, some in their former homes and others through emigration to faraway places. This webinar seeks to answer the question of what happens after a genocide has taken place, from the plight of individual survivors to the rebuilding of communities and civil society. This webinar connects with Lesson Plan Units 6 and 10 on the Echoes & Reflections website. Register here. Echoes & Reflections webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
