THE NEUBERGER'S FIRST VIRTUAL STUDENT SYMPOSIUM FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

The Holocaust in Context: 2021

Re-imagining the role of Holocaust education in unprecedented times
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 3 | 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM EDT
ONLINE | FREE

 

We often talk about how the past can help inform our present day and future understandings of the world we live in. This exclusive symposium designed for high school students will reinforce this notion by providing a framework for understanding why we need to continue to study the Holocaust to better understand ourselves and our society. Why is the Holocaust still relevant? What types of present-day connections exist? What will be Holocaust education’s role in the future and why do we even care? Are just some of the questions we will explore in this year’s unique online symposium.

 

Through five concise 10-minute sessions, designed to shed light on some of the most contemporary aspects of Holocaust education and the most frequently asked questions about the Holocaust, Neuberger professionals, and special guests will come together to explore the ongoing relevance of this history for today’s learners.
