Holocaust Education for a New Generation

7:30PM - 9:30PM  

Don Heights Unitarian Congregation 18 Wynford Drive
Toronto, ON

Findings from a recent study showed that 22% of millennials haven’t heard/ are not sure if they have heard of the Holocaust and 62% did not know that 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust. What are the consequences of such knowledge gaps? Join us for this interactive evening which will highlight the organization Facing History and Ourselves and how they make Holocaust Education relevant and meaningful to young people across the country.

 

Leora Schaefer is the Executive Director of Facing History and Ourselves Canada. Facing History is an organization that uses the lessons of history to inspire teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate.
