Book Launch: Becoming a Holocaust Educator: Purposeful Pedagogy Through Inquiry

Hosted By: The Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights (TOLI)

Join The Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights for the launch of Becoming a Holocaust Educator: Purposeful Pedagogy Through Inquiry, scheduled to be released October 22, with a roundtable discussion featuring teachers who work to address the specific history of the Holocaust and who recognize its relevance for understanding today’s world. Co-editors Jennifer Lemberg, Associate Director of US Programs at TOLI, and Alexander “Sandy” Pope, Associate Professor of education at Salisbury University and co-leader of TOLI’s Maryland Satellite Seminar, will facilitate a discussion grounded in the experiences of teachers who are navigating the challenges of teaching the Holocaust and social justice in their classrooms.

The panelists, all contributors to the volume, will explore how to study the Holocaust through inquiry; reflect on how teaching this history intersects with other subjects including American Indian history and the experience of refugees living in the US, and consider how their Holocaust teaching came to transform their classroom practice.

Speakers will include:
Corey Harbaugh, co-leader of TOLI’s Satellite Seminar in Michigan;
Brenda Johnston, co-leader of TOLI’s Satellite Seminar in Montana;
Michelle Sadrena Pledger, past leader of a TOLI Satellite Seminar in California; and
Wendy Warren, TOLI’s Satellite Program Coordinator

With welcoming remarks by Sondra Perl, Senior Program Director of US Programs at TOLI and author of On Austrian Soil: Teaching Those I Was Taught to Hate
