The Roma & Sam Kaltman Holocaust Studies for Educators

The 2020 Roma & Sam Kaltman Holocaust Studies for Educators is now Virtual.

Roma and Sam Kaltman never shied away from a challenge and neither do we; that is why we decided to move the Roma & Sam Kaltman Holocaust Studies for Educators (HSE) to a digital format.

Beginning on July 6, Holocaust Studies for Educators will proceed over 5 weeks online, featuring leading experts in the field of Holocaust Studiestestimony of local Holocaust survivors, and discussion about best teaching practices for Holocaust education.

All of the content and interaction you would have received in person is available in an online format. There will be live sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays with presenters and breakouts. Zoom interaction will be limited to 4.5 hours a week and recorded for those of you who cannot make the live sessions. On Wednesdays, there will be Holocaust survivors or their family members speaking live and taking your questions.

We are proud to announce a great lineup of local and international Holocaust experts and scholars featuring:
  • Doris Bergen, author of War & Genocide: A Concise History of the Holocaust
  • Peter Hayes, author of Why? Explaining the Holocaust
  • Michael Dobbs, author and winner of a 2019 National Jewish Book Award for The Unwanted: America, Auschwitz, and a Village Caught in Between
  • David M. Crane, founding Chief Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone and editor of The Founders: Four Pioneering Individuals Who Launched the First Modern-Era International Criminal Tribunals
