Professional Development for Teachers
Teaching the Holocaust can be daunting. The amount of information can be overwhelming and time available can be limited. Further, the Holocaust is a dark period in human history, how does one teach with sensitivity and not traumatise students? The Jewish Holocaust Centre is here to help! We offer professional development courses, as well as partner with organisations to deliver learning outcomes.
We are here to support you. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if we can be of any assistance.
Antisemitism: The Longest Hatred
Antisemitism has been described as the ‘longest hatred.’ In this two-part course, you will explore the evolution and manifestations of antisemitism – from ancient and medieval to contemporary. Paul Forgasz, the course lecturer and an affiliate of the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation at Monash University, will examine how no other group prejudice has displayed such intensity and historic continuity in different times and places, culminating in the most devastating of consequences, the Holocaust.
This program is being delivered in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Australia. The use will be made of both primary and secondary sources, and you will also engage in discussion about the application of these rich learning materials in your own classrooms. No prior knowledge will be assumed on the part of participants.
Date: 11 & 18 March 2021
Time: 4.15 PM – 6.30 PM
Duration: (135min) via Zoom
