WEBINAR: Teaching the Holocaust Digitally: Challenging Student Assumptions Through Primary Sources

Free
American Historical Association

Teaching the Holocaust Digitally: Challenging Student Assumptions Through Primary Sources
AHA Learn Series
Wednesday, February 7, 3 p.m. ET

How can we teach about the Holocaust and its complex lessons to students today? Join the team at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as they walk us through Experiencing History: Holocaust Sources in Context, a primary source tool for the college classroom. With more than 350 primary sources, including diaries, letters, interviews, historical film footage, photographs, and more, these diverse materials are curated and contextualized for use in a variety of courses. With new material on the topic of “Belonging and Exclusion: Reshaping Society under Nazi Rule,” we’ll explore how to use this digital tool as a platform for active student learning and engagement around the teaching of difficult histories. Experiencing History leverages the digital medium in order to show students how complex and messy these sources—and the motivations of the people who created them—can be.

This event features Leah Wolfson, Luke Ryder, and Mark Alexander from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

This online event is part of AHA Learn, a new series focused on teaching and learning in history. It is free and open to the public. To attend, register here. Can’t make it? Sign up anyway and view the recording on the AHA’s YouTube channel after the event.
