The seminar, sponsored and organized by the Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Education and Human Rights (TOLI), takes place when extremism and attacks on minorities have reached alarming highs. TOLI seminars take place throughout the US, providing teachers with the opportunity to learn the Holocaust, see through that lens other atrocities and genocides, and apply its lessons to today’s world.
