Museum Education

By Peter Fredlake

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2006

Fredlake encourages teachers to explore programs at Holocaust museums. Though many resources are available via the internet, teachers who can travel to a Holocaust museum will reap additional benefits: Educators may not have the time to reflect on the Holocaust curriculum or consider strategies, but museum professionals grapple with these issues every day; teachers can immerse themselves in the museum's artifacts, which bring history alive in a way that books and websites can't reproduce; and museums can speak powerfully to the responsibility of Holocaust educators, inspiring them to approach the history and literature of the Holocaust with curiosity, humility, and respect.
