Online on Thursday, June 3 | 9 AM - 3 PM ET
Join us on Chancellor’s Day—Thursday, June 3, 2021—for our full-day, online professional development program, “Hiding and Rescue during the Holocaust.” The program will feature lectures by two scholars, who will discuss the complicated dynamics of hiding and rescue, and testimonies from a Holocaust survivor and a descendant of a Holocaust survivor.
All four sessions will be conducted on Zoom and are open to active classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, and school administrators. Participants will receive CTLE hours and access to curricular materials.
