In partnership with Xavier University, the Holocaust Studies for Educators course provides teachers with knowledge and resources to effectively teach the Holocaust in the classroom. The course features local, national, international scholars and experts in the fields of Holocaust, genocide, religious and diversity education. Teachers will engage in dialogue with survivors and other eyewitnesses, as they study the historical overview of the Holocaust. Educators will also receive hands on experience with high quality lessons and activities from the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education, The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM), Yad Vashem, USC Shoah Foundation, and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
The course is named in honor of Roma and Sam Kaltman, Holocaust survivors who relocated and lived in Cincinnati. The Kaltman’s were committed to education and telling their stories, so that future generations would “not forget.” In its 21st year, the Kaltman’s daughter Sandy, and her husband John Isidor continue their commitment to Holocaust remembrance and education in presenting this course. Additional funding is provided by the Claims Conference.
The course is open to all educators currently teaching in the classroom.
34 contact hours or an option of 2 hour graduate level credits are available at an additional fee.
