The Holocaust and the Meaning of Place

Date: July 29, 2018 05:00 PM

Contact: Website

Location: University of Minnesota
Twin Cities Campus

Description:

A weeklong free seminar (July 29-Aug.4) for 4-12 and college educators to explore place-based, inquiry lessons
around the Holocaust, the Dakota exile and contemporary local human rights issues.

Sponsored by The Olga Lengyel Institute (TOLI), The Holocaust and the Meaning of Place will explore what happens when a child’s safe environment is disrupted by historical trauma, as it was for the Jewish community during the Holocaust and for the Dakota people as a result of Federal Indian Policy.

Using inquiry-based learning and National Writing Project pedagogy, participants will engage with primary source materials and survivor testimonies, and take several field trips. They will experience new educational approaches to teaching about the Holocaust and other genocides, learning best practices for guiding their students through the study of these difficult topics, while maintaining their faith in the future.

Attendees will receive a $100 participation stipend and will leave with ideas they can implement in the school year ahead.
