November 15, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm EST

Free Educator Workshop:Ā  How Jews Lived: Diversity in Prewar Central and Eastern Europe
Educator Workshop November 15, 2023
10am-3:30pm at the Virginia Holocaust Museum
2000 East Cary Street, Richmond, VA. 23223

Deadline for Registration is November 8, 2023

Join the Virginia Holocaust Museum and Centropa for a day of professional developmentĀ focused on Jewish life before the Holocaust.Ā  Itā€™s not enough to teach how Jews were murdered; we must also teach how they lived, and Centropa, a historical institute based in Vienna, offers you easily accessible resources to do just that. From 2000 to 2009, Centropa interviewed over 1200 elderly Jews in 15 Central and Eastern European countries. They did not use video or focus on the Holocaust. Rather, they asked their interviewees to share their entire life stories spanning the 20th century as they showed them their old family photographs, which they digitized.

In this workshop, you will spend time with Centropa’s interviews, photographs, short multimedia films, thematic websites, and podcasts about Jewish life from the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire through the first decade of the 21st century and exploring the diversity of Jewish life and culture the Nazis attempted to wipe out.

This workshop is free for educators and includes:

  • Breakfast, Coffee, and Lunch
  • Educator Resources
  • A certificate of attendance
