Women’s Experiences During Genocide
Join Illinois Holocaust Museum to delve deeply into the experiences of women during multiple genocides, including the Holocaust, Bosnia, and Rwanda. To restore agency to women, educators will explore the multiple roles women played during genocide. Through close reading/viewing of primary sources and testimony, educators will dissect the difficult decisions women had to make to survive and analyze the choices made by women perpetrators and survivors. Educators will leave with a wealth of knowledge and resources to incorporate women’s experiences into their genocide unit.
