Holocaust Education in the Aftermath of the Pittsburgh Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting

Featuring Lauren Bairnsfather, Executive Director, Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh

It has been more than a year since the deadly attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 27, 2018, which horrified the community of Squirrel Hill and the nation. For educators who teach the Holocaust, it was especially hard to witness intolerance turning into violence, as it did at Tree of Life and now in other Jewish neighborhoods and houses of worship. Hear Dr. Lauren Apter Bairnsfather, Executive Director of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh, share the role of Holocaust education in addressing hate today.
