“Everybody — every human being — has the obligation to contribute somehow to this world”
—Edith Carter, Holocaust Survivor
The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education hosts several works for educators each year. Attend one of these workshops and receive free resources, network with other educators, and learn new tips and techniques to enhance Holocaust education in your classroom.
Upcoming Educator Workshops
Thursday, February 27th, 4:30pm – 8pm
The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
50 E. Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH45202
Join The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center to explore the history of the Rwandan genocide and America’s response-or lack there of. Then we will hear the testimony of Carl Wilkens, an eyewitness to the atrocities who is dedicated to making genocide an event of the past. Teachers will explore this history with fellow educators from throughout the area and receive hands-on resources to bring back into their classrooms.
As a humanitarian aid worker, Wilkens moved his family to Rwanda in 1990. When the genocide began in April 1994, Carl refused to leave, even when urged to do so by his church and the US government. He was one of the few Americans to remain.
“Stories are our most powerful weapons…they have the potential to end a fight with two winners.”

Join us at The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education to commemorate Human Rights Day and to hear from Dr. Danny Cohen, a learning scientist at Northwestern University, specializing in the design of Holocaust education. This workshop will examine the history of Nazi persecution of people with disabilities during the Holocaust and how educators can weave these stories into their units on the Holocaust.
Dr. Cohen is the author of a forthcoming young adult novel “TRAIN” and project director of “The TRAIN Curriculum”; which addresses the interdependency of Jewish and non-Jewish Holocaust victimhoods. His article “Teaching about T4: The Nazis’ Persecution of People with Disabilities” was published in the journal, The Holocaust in History and Memory.
