History is Personal
This is the third and final episode in a special mini-series profiling Holocaust educators. First, we’ll hear from a German college professor who teaches classes on the Holocaust and other genocides. He says it’s important to focus on the role individuals play in carrying out a genocide and that real learning happens when students get uncomfortable.
Then we’ll hear from two screenwriters who wrote a children’s book about the Shoah. Specifically, it’s through the eyes of the cat who lived with Anne Frank while she and her family were hiding from the Nazis. They say it’s a ‘gentle’ introduction to the Holocaust and is designed to educate and empower the youth.
