Teaching the Legacy: e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators
(January, 2008)


Winter Seminar for Jewish Educators December 21, 2007 - January 6, 2008
The Winter Seminar for Jewish Educators will be hosting 21 participants from around the globe. The seminars is designed to give teachers and academics an intense learning experience focusing first and foremost on the history of the Shoah, while including a wide range of lectures and activities focusing upon a range of topics in the areas of art, theology, literature, antisemitism, and Holocaust denial.

International Winter Seminar January 6, 2008 - January 24, 2008
This winter, 40 participants from countries around the world will be participating this January in the International Winter Seminar. They represented a wide spectrum of educators – schoolteachers, university professors, and Holocaust museum personnel. Most of the participants were not Jewish and for the majority this was their first visit to Israel.

The international seminars in English are designed to address the interests and needs of academics, teachers, members of the clergy, museum personnel, and community leaders. Participants routinely come from 10-15 countries and it is this diverse population that allows for an educational experience that challenges the participants to look not only at their own pedagogical and cultural views but also those of the teachers they meet here.
