About the Event
Teaching Holocaust Herstories:
Mothers, Daughters, Fighters, and Survivors
A Centropa professional development opportunity for Los Angeles teachers in partnership with the LA County Office of Education.
Wednesday, November 10, 2021 ~ 4:30-6:30pm Pacific Standard Time ~ online
Two girls who fought with the partisans in Croatia; a teenager who survived the Holocaust because she was sentenced to ten years’ hard labor in the Gulag—for joining a youth group; a girl who survived, unlike her parents, because they courageously sent her to England on the Kindertransport. The experiences of women in the Holocaust are varied and Centropa’s stories and photographs of women from different countries, of all ages and diverse socio-economic backgrounds, help you explore human themes through real life stories.
In this online, 90-minute webinar, Centropa will share user-friendly materials about women in the Holocaust, usable in online or in-class teaching. Participating teachers will return to class with specific activities for teaching these stories.
Centropa interviewed 1,200 elderly Jews living in 15 European countries. We asked our respondents to tell us their entire life stories spanning the 20th c. as they showed us their old family photographs.
Centropa offers teachers
· a database of thousands of annotated photographs of Jewish life spanning the 20th century;
· hundreds of interviews, and theme-based websites with specific excerpts;
· award-winning, short multimedia films (between 3 and 30 minutes)—ideal for creating virtual or in-class projects that teach digital literacy, promote critical thinking, increase global awareness—all free of charge;
· an annual summer trip to the great cities of Central Europe with 80 teachers from 15 countries—in 2022 we will be in Berlin.
