Upcoming Events 

 

Election Day Professional Development

Hidden Children During the Holocaust

Date: Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Time: 9:00 AM – 2:30 PM

Fee: Free of charge for classroom teachers, but pre-registration is required

This day of professional development will focus on the experience of hidden children during the Holocaust. Through lecture, testimony, and the study of artifacts and primary sources, we will examine strategies for teaching this topic.

Admission for active classroom teachers is free, but pre-registration is required. Lunch will be provided to those who register by October 29 and receive a confirmation email from the Museum (dietary laws observed).

Conference for Educators

European Deaf Jews and the Deaf Community under National Socialism: The Phenomenon of the Deaf Holocaust
Date: Sunday, November 9, 2014
Time: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Fee: Free of charge for classroom teachers, but pre-registration is required

We hope that you will join us for our annual Fall Conference for Educators to examine the experience of Deaf Jews during the Holocaust. Mark Zaurov, a doctoral student at the University of Hamburg and a former United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Fellow, will lecture in ASL (with interpretation provided) on the former European Deaf Jewish world completely destroyed by Nazis, as well as clarify common misconceptions about the experience of Deaf Jews during the Holocaust.

Admission for classroom teachers is free, but pre-registration is required. Lunch will be provided at 12:00 P.M. to those who register by October 29 and receive a confirmation email from the Museum (dietary laws observed).

Teachers are invited to tour the Museum before and after the conference, during regular Museum hours.

 

After the program, participants are invited to join us at 1:00 PM for Holocaust survivor testimony as part of our Sunday Speakers series. No tickets are required for this event. Learn more here.

At 2:30, author Eric Lichtblau will discuss his book The Nazis Next Door: How America Became a Safe Haven for Hitler’s Men.  Tickets are required. More information is available here.

ASL interpretation will be available for both afternoon events on November 9.

Professional development at the Museum is funded, in part, by a generous grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education
