    It Starts with Words: Teaching the Holocaust to Combat Hate

    Saturday, May 6, 2023 from 8am – 5pm at the Museum of Idaho in Idaho Falls

    How do we help students understand that antisemitism did not begin nor end with the Holocaust? What do students need to know in order to recognize antisemitism today and to stand up to antisemitism and other forms of hate? The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights in partnership with the Idaho Humanities Council and Echoes & Reflections invite you to learn about the Holocaust and contemporary connections to understanding and countering hate. This professional development opportunity will provide educators with classroom-ready materials and instructional strategies to teach about the Holocaust in a meaningful way.  We will focus on fundamental, thematic, and focused areas of study applicable to a range of curricular school subjects.

    The first 25 teachers to sign up will receive a $150 stipend to attend this program. Continuing education credit is available.

    “We must cultivate student interest in applying the human rights perspective gained from these stories to their personal lives, schools, and communities. We must encourage students to utilize the skills they already possess for effective action (whether they recognize these skills in themselves). And, we must help them find resources for doing so. Fortunately, we don’t have to look further than the amazing programming of the Wassmuth Center.”
    Ben Harris, 2019 Idaho Human Rights Educator-of-the-Year, Bishop Kelly High School.
