The Roma & Sam Kaltman Holocaust Studies for Educators

June 15-19, 2020
Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, Union Terminal

Roma and Sam Kaltman met in the Lodz Ghetto over a love of reading and education. They survived the Holocaust, settled in Cincinnati, and advocated for education. Named in their honor, Holocaust Studies for Educators (HSE) provides teachers with the knowledge and resources to effectively teach the Holocaust in their classrooms. This innovative five-day workshop in June introduces teachers to pedagogy, teaching rationale, resources, witness testimony, and dialogue with leading experts in the field of Holocaust and genocide studies. Educators can earn up to 40 contact hours or apply for a two-hour graduate level credit through Xavier University.

Application Requirements

The course is open to all educators but is specifically designed for middle and high school teachers of history, social studies, English literature, art, music, and other related disciplines who are currently teaching the Holocaust in their classrooms.

Cost: $100 for contact hours, $500 for graduate level credits. Low-cost housing available for the week through Hebrew Union College.
