This program will ask participants to reflect on basic Holocaust history, understanding that it was a watershed event in the history of the world, while examining the choices that people, groups, and governments made during WWII. We will review the ideas of how democratic institutions can be easily pulled apart through apathy and neglect. Best Practice activities will include ways to help our students understand the ramifications of racism, prejudice, and stereotyping, and why we continue to need to teach the lessons of the Holocaust in the twenty-first century.
