Holocaust Studies


T081514_inside-scoop-educationeaching the Holocaust is no easy feat. How do teachers find the resources they need to educate students about what is arguably the most atrocious period in human history? Thanks to the annual Jewish Museum of Maryland’s summer teacher’s institute, they have support. Every summer in late July or early August, the JMM and co-sponsor the Baltimore Jewish Council offer three days of training, including presentations, discussions and activities that provide Maryland educators with the tools to teach their students about the Holocaust. The program includes a bus trip to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The theme for this summer’s program, which took place July 28-30, was Keeping the Memories Alive: The Voices of the Holocaust and included presentations by the USC Shoah Foundation: The Institute of Visual History and Education and Centropa: Preserving Jewish Memory-Keeping History Alive.
