Uncomfortable Truths: Exploring the Silences of the Holocaust to Confront and Overcome our Own
Saturday, March 14, 2020
9:00 AM-1:00 PM
Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center at Union Terminal
What are the silences related to the Holocaust and how can we use these historical examples to help individuals address their own uncomfortable truths? Using the silences found in Holocaust testimony, this workshop will address how biases and hidden prejudices affect students. We will explore how we can overcome our own biases and silences through understanding and activating our 24 character strengths to help us create safe learning environments for our students.
Workshop is open to all educators currently teaching in the classroom.
