Why Teach the Holocaust in 2020?  Martin County

Caldwell County

Click here to register

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.

These are the handouts that will be used for the January 31, 2020 workshop in Williamston. We suggest you download and print the following (13) documents  for the program.
