Effectively incorporating survivor testimony into Holocaust education personalizes the history being taught and allows students to make an emotional connection to those who experienced it first hand. This workshop will help educators make those connections through the use of testimony from local survivor Sonia Warshawski.
This workshop features:
- Echoes and Reflections curriculum
- MCHE’s Witnesses to the Holocaust Archive
- teaching unit on modern antisemitism
- classroom version and teaching materials for Big Sonia. Participants are encouraged to watch the documentary before attending the workshop.
Your free registration includes a complimentary copy of the Echoes and Reflections teacher guide, handouts, resource materials, and a light dinner.
Participation is limited to 10 educators (grades 7-12) from each of the following school districts:
- Blue Valley School District
- Kansas City, Kansas School District
- Olathe School District
- Piper School District
- Shawnee Mission School District
- Turner School District.
A waiting list for registrations beyond 10 educators per district will be maintained.
This workshop is facilitated by MCHE’s director of education, Jessica Rockhold and JCRB/AJC Executive Director Gavriela Geller. Big Sonia Directors Leah Warshawski and Todd Soliday will be present to answer questions about the documentary.
