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


The Department for International Seminars for Educators is pleased with the success of its Sixth International Conference on Holocaust Education, held in July, 2008. 750 educators from 53 countries spent four days exploring three different themes: “Racism and Antisemitism in the 19th and 20th Centuries,” “Teaching the Holocaust in a Multicultural Society,” and “Building a Better World – the Legacy of the Holocaust Survivors and Celebrating Israel in its 60th Year.” Complete with panel speakers and educational workshops, educators of different faiths and backgrounds joined together to ensure the continuation of Holocaust education to the next generation.

As we head into our next season of programs, we are looking ahead to our International Winter Seminar in English and the Echoes and Reflections Seminar, both in January. We are excited to host educators from South America and China who will come for seminars in the first half of 2009.

Our department is constantly working to bring educators from around the world to our campus for enlightening and engaging seminars to enrich their classrooms and students.
