SUMMER SEMINAR IN NEW YORK CITY

Middle school, high school, and college educators are eligible to apply for our summer seminar in New York City, which encourages participants to think creatively and collaboratively about how they teach the Holocaust, genocide, and social justice. Participants become adept at dealing with difficult material and discover how writing, dialogue, and inquiry can help motivate students toward social action.

“How do we make the Holocaust accessible to students? What’s at stake for them, for us, for the world? But equally important, what can we learn by working with one another?”
