50. Educational Considerations in Teaching about the Shoah
The session will present different educational approaches to teaching about the Shoah. We will examine educational aims and lessons to be learned about the Holocaust in Israel and the Diaspora. Should it be taught as a “Jewish” or universal issue? How to relate to the Shoah from historical, literary, religious and individual points of view? This is an interactive session in which participants are encouraged to share experiences, weigh pedagogical choices and create their own educational narrative of the Holocaust.
