Holocaust Education Round Table

By Svi Shapiro, Judy Bolton-Fasman, Rena Finder, Shira Deener, Shana Penn

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2006

Authors and educators speak about teaching the Holocaust and how it fits into a school setting. Holocaust education can teach not only about historical events, but also about Jewish identity; communal responsibility; awareness of and connection to current events; the relationship between the individual and society; and foundational human issues like cruelty and hatred. The roles of parents, of Holocaust survivors, and Yom Hashoah should all be considered.
