The International School for Holocaust Studies

Teaching the Legacy: e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators
(September, 2007)


In July and August, 2007, the International School will host seminars for teachers, educators and commemoration site workers from Austria and German states. Participants spend one to two weeks at Yad Vashem, focusing on various aspects within Holocaust education, such as daily life in the ghettos, the Holocaust and genocide, Jewish life before the Holocaust and more. Pedagogical issues will be discussed as well, including interdisciplinary teaching methods and age-appropriation of the material. The seminars include lectures, workshops, meetings with survivors, and tours. Participants are given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the School’s educational philosophy and the greater Yad Vashem complex outside of the Historical Museum.
