The NC Council on the Holocaust is partnering with Centropa for this workshop. Centropa is an excellent resource for Holocaust educators. Their work centers around Jewish life before and after the Holocaust. This workshop will feature local NC survivors and the Centropa film of their story of survival. Holocaust education is enhanced by the study of Jewish life and Jewish contributions in Europe before the war, as well as stories of survival and Jewish life post-WWII.
Centropa works with American, European, and Israeli teachers in seminars around the world. Each summer they host a Summer Academy in Europe with teachers from the US, Israel, and Europe.
