The Holocaust is often seen and taught as an event with a singular perspective. Part of the effort to personalize the history is to see how the same historical event impacted individuals in unique and varied ways. These workshops examine the experience of the Holocaust through a few of the many perspectives of those who lived through it. They will focus on the policy and experience of perpetration based on geography – specifically focusing on Western Europe.
Each workshop will explore the role of the war in the unfolding of the Holocaust in that country and feature primary source documents, survivor testimony and resources for classroom use. Participants will learn from lectures, extensive primary source analysis and seminar-style discussions of the content. The schedule, though subject to change, is:
June 24 – The Holocaust in France
June 25 – The Holocaust in Italy and the Role of the Vatican
June 26 – The Holocaust in the Low Countries
June 27 – The Holocaust in Greece and Southern Europe
A registration fee of $60 includes all necessary materials. Minimum enrollment must be met by May 30.
