This workshop includes a special opportunity for educators to learn from Yehudit Shendar, retired Deputy Director and senior Art Curator at Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Museum and Memorial. Shendar will introduce educators to the field of Holocaust art history, and the integration of art in Holocaust education. Following Shendar, experienced high school educator George Dalbo and Jewish community educator Demetrios Vital will present curricular materials for teaching the Holocaust, genocides and human rights in the classroom: one in a social sciences context, and the other in an art context.

Attending educators will receive and learn about educational resources and programming available through Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, and tour the exhibition [Re]Telling at the Sabes JCC, which includes a student response component related to the curricular materials as well as works in the CHGS travelling art collection.

Made possible by the Arsham and Charlotte Ohanessian Endowment Fund for Justice and Peace Studies of the Minneapolis Foundation.
