Free Educator Workshop: “Teaching About Partisan Resistance”
February 23 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm EST
The Virginia Holocaust Museum (VHM) and the Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation present “Teaching About Partisan Resistance.” Join us as Bruce Bramlett, from the Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation shares the history and stories of Jewish men and women who fought in organized, armed resistance groups throughout Europe, saving thousands and striking back at the Nazis and their collaborators.
Learn the history, best practices, and resources to use in the classroom to help your students critically examine the topics of resistance, revenge, and ethics. Teaching with the film Defiance, the story of the Bielski brothers and women in the partisans, will be of particular focus during the workshop.
This workshop is FREE for educators and includes:
· Breakfast, Coffee, and Lunch
· Educator guide, lesson plans and a special Defiance DVD with scenes suitable for classroom use
· A certificate of attendance
