Educator Workshop: Defining and Teaching Genocide Part 1
Saturday, January 30, 2021 | 10:00 am EST | Zoom

What is genocide? The word, coined by Raphael Lemkin, describes the mass murder of the Armenians in World War I and what took place during the Holocaust. The word was created to ensure that those who committed the crimes that took place during these events could be fully prosecuted under the crime of genocide. The definition was also to be applied as a warning to prevent future atrocities. This workshop will explore the definition of the word, how it has been used to help teachers educate their students about genocide, and how it relates to the Holocaust and future and past mass atrocities. We will also explore rationale for teaching genocide and share resources to help you achieve your goals.
