Incorporating the Holocaust into the Classroom:Educating Teachers on the Holocaust through Holocaust Survivors

To be held at St. Thomas University

July 27 – 29, 2009

The St. Thomas University Holocaust Centre will hold a seminar for teachers from July 27-29, 2009, focusing on pedagogical methods of incorporating the lessons of the Holocaust into the current public school curriculum. As a truly unique opportunity for teachers, the seminar will utilize the expertise and experiences of four Atlantic Canada Holocaust survivors in reaching this aim.

The window of opportunity to take advantage of such resources amongst our own population is unfortunately closing. For this reason, the Holocaust Centre’s seminar aspires to impart the individuality of each survivor’s first hand story while providing the tools for teachers to utilize these experiences within the larger context of in-class learning.

Enrollment in the seminar is limited to thirty participants so as to create an intimate and interactive environment between teachers, lecturers and survivors. Upon completion of the seminar, teachers will be awarded a certificate of participation.

Registration is $300 and includes materials, nutrition breaks and lunches.
