Facing History and Ourselves: Understanding the Voices and Choices of Young People During the Holocaust

A partnership of the Museum of Tolerance with Facing History and Ourselves

This two-day institute brings participants together to explore the voices of young people during the Holocaust–what factors contributed to their identity, what choices they made, and what students today can learn by studying the Holocaust to better understand ordinary people and human behavior. This institute is particularly relevant for participants teaching the Diary of Anne Frank and/or the Holocaust. Participants will leave this institute with a much deeper understanding of the Holocaust and the specific impact and voice of adolescents during that time. Using the unique exhibits of the Museum of Tolerance, including its newest Anne Frank exhibit, the program also features the opportunity to meet and listen to the testimony of a Holocaust survivor. Everyone walks away with new insights, tools, and valuable classroom resources.

Sessions qualify LAUSD Salary Point (1) Credit. All sessions qualify for (1) Graduate level extension credit from the University of San Diego.
