SPOTLIGHT ON CONTEMPORARY ANTISEMITISM

Wednesday, November 14, 2018
4:00 – 6:30 PM

How do we help students understand antisemitism didn’t start or end with the Holocaust, and what do they need to know to recognize and stand up to antisemitism today? Teachers will explore materials to support effective teaching of contemporary antisemitism, its global reach, and its expression in the form of hate speech, violence, denial, and distortion of the Holocaust. This workshop is valuable for both experienced Holocaust educators who are supplementing their curricula and for teachers new to Holocaust education. Free; registration is required. 

Presented by Echoes and Reflections, a joint program of the Anti-Defamation League, USC Shoah Foundation, and Yad Vashem
