Join us on January 31, 2022 for a day of online professional development about liberation at the end of the Holocaust. The program will feature lectures by two scholars, who will illuminate the stories of survivors as they sought to rebuild their lives and discuss the experiences of both Jewish American and Black American soldiers who witnessed the aftermath of the atrocities committed by the Nazis. Participants will also hear from a descendant of a survivor, who will share her grandmother’s story of liberation.
All three sessions will be conducted on Zoom and are open to active classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, and school administrators.
Please note that you must register for each session individually. You must register with your first and last name in order to be counted for attendance and receive CTLE credit. You will receive CTLE hours for the sessions you attend. We encourage participants to join us for all three sessions.
