Join The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education, in partnership with the AJA, for our first educator workshop of the 2013-2014 school year! Dr. Dana Herman, academic associate of the AJA and managing editor of the American Jewish Archives Journal, will examine America’s response to the growing Jewish refugee crisis in the 1930s. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the archive and come face-to-face with government records and primary source material from Holocaust-era collections of the AJA. Dr. Herman’s presentation will help us to prepare our students to examine primary source materials and how these documents can provide insight into history-and more importantly, how they can help to make connections to issues of our own day. Participants will receive facsimiles to bring back into their classrooms.
