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.
