Dakota Writing Project Holocaust Institute
recipients: Jan Hausmann, Mount Marty College, South Dakota
date: 2008

In the summers of 2009-2011, the Dakota Writing Project, with support from the Memorial Library, hosted the    “DWP Holocaust Institute: Exploring the Issues of Cultural Trauma, Identity, and Resilience in the Jewish and Native American Communities” at the University of South Dakota, Vermillion, where participating teachers developed unit plans about the Holocaust and American Indian genocide while considering shared questions about identity, trauma, and loss. Highlights included a screening and discussion of Au Revoir Les Enfants, a panel of past Memorial Library Summer Seminar participants, and meetings with a research librarian at the University of South Dakota.
