Diaries and Memoirs: Using Primary Sources to Teach about the Holocaust
For 7th-12th grade educators
As educators we strive to give the past meaning for our students. Diaries and memoirs are essential tools in teaching the Holocaust, helping our students to develop both a historical and a human understanding of this complex history. This session will provide an overview of how to use these invaluable primary source records in your classroom and provide strategies and approaches to incorporate into your curriculum. Teachers will also receive an introduction to the resources of Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center for both educators and students.
