Finding Home: Refugees, Resilience & Rebuilding
In Partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM)
Saturday, December 7, 8:30 AM-5:00 PM at HHC
Using resources from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM), artifacts, and local stories from HHC, we will explore the hardships of emigration/immigration in Western Europe beginning in 1933 and later in Eastern Europe after the beginning of World War II, through hands-on activities and lessons which can be easily integrated into the classroom. We will also examine refugees in the aftermath of the War and connections to today’s world.
