Telling My Story: Holocaust Survivors Speak in the Classroom

Teaching the Holocaust with Artifacts and Primary Source Materials

Moderated by Jane Denny

This workshop will review the use of primary source documents and artifacts as a means to enhancing your class's understanding of these valuable and irreplaceable resources. We will explore the initiatives used at CHHANGE (The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education) at Brookdale Community College, as a national example, and the types of materials housed at Yad Vashem, as a global example, to evaluate the significance of these data.


The Second Generation

Moderated by Peppy Margolis

This session provides an opportunity for educators to understand the impact of the Holocaust on children of survivors, known as the Second Generation. Participants will discuss the creation and content of a unique and innovative documentary about children of survivors with the filmmaker.


An Apple, A Crimson Scarf, A High-Heeled Shoe: Teaching About the Holocaust Through Artifacts

Moderated by Karen Shawn

Through reading and discussing classroom-friendly Holocaust poetry and testimony excerpts, we will identify and use the artifacts survivors describe to contextualize the literature, deepening and broadening students' understanding of the history of the events detailed in individual narratives.
