Making Holocaust Education Relevant for Teachers, Students, and our Community

In Education, Holocaust, Home by Judy Schindler0 Comments

At the Greenspon Center, our mission is to provide students and educators with resources to facilitate dialogue and discussion on the dangers of what can happen when stereotyping, prejudice, and hatred are allowed to flourish.

Through the lens of the Holocaust and reflecting on today’s realities, we offer valuable resources to assist teachers regardless of whether it is their first year or their third decade in the classroom.  We offer ten teacher workshops throughout the year, utilizing nationally and internationally recognized professional development organizations such as Facing History and Ourselves, Echoes and Reflections, and the Olga Lengyel (TOLI) Institute for Holocaust Studies.

Please join us for an upcoming workshop.  Our programs are available for your community organization.

The next full day workshop is entitled, “Jewish Refugees and the Holocaust; Connecting the Past With Today.” It will be presented by Echoes and Reflections, the educational arm of the Anti-Defamation League.

When: Monday, November 6, 2017, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Where: Queens University Sports Complex and Conference Center, 2229 Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28210

Cost: Free

WHAT IS ECHOES & REFLECTIONS? Echoes & Reflections is the premier source for Holocaust educational materials and dynamic content, empowering teachers and students with the insight needed to question the past and foresight to impact the future. We partner with educators to support them, foster confidence, and amplify their skills and resources to teach about the Holocaust in a comprehensive and meaningful way.

WHY ATTEND THIS PROGRAM? As the world struggles with the largest refugee crisis since WWII, Echoes & Reflections’ content can help examine the barriers to immigration and the unwillingness of the free world to accept refugees during the Holocaust. This timely learning opportunity supports educators to make meaningful connections with their students to similar issues affecting people and nations today.

“The content allows for connections to be made across time and place. As global citizens, students can take action right where they are. I could go on… this workshop enlightened me.”   —High School History Teacher
