Teaching Resistance during the Holocaust with Echoes & Reflections. Facilitated by Sheryl Ochayon, Program Director, Echoes & Reflections, Yad Vashem

Thursday, March 15
8401 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati Ohio 45236

Students often ask, “Why didn’t the Jews resist?”  Elie Wiesel wrote, “The question is not why all the Jews did not fight, but how so many of them did. Tormented, beaten, starved, where did they find the strength—spiritual and physical—to resist?” The truth is they did, in a variety of ways against the largest of odds.

The workshop will focus on the many ways Jews resisted during the Holocaust using Echoes & Reflections lesson on Jewish Resistance and by exploring the narratives of Cincinnati survivors who have shared their stories of resistance during the Holocaust. The lessons also show educators how to make connections to our world today.

The workshop is free and open to all educators. A light dinner will be served. 2.5 CEUS available.
