Holocaust Studies Summer Institute at FAU

 

In this annual intensive five-day seminar South Florida educators become better prepared to implement the Florida state mandate requiring Holocaust education in all schools. The program’s goal is to deepen educators’ knowledge about the Holocaust, to expose educators to pedagogically sound methods for teaching the Holocaust, and to foster inquiry into contemporary issues raised by the study of the Holocaust, genocide, and human rights. The program enables teachers to study the Holocaust as members of a learning community in a setting that brings together peers, university scholars, and Holocaust survivors. Each day features lectures, demonstrations of resources, and classroom applications.

The Summer Institute is funded by the Memorial Library. It is designed and conducted by the Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education at Florida Atlantic University. For more information email rgatens@fau.edu or visit http://www.coe.fau.edu/main/holocaust/default.htm.
