This conference will feature guest speakers, and will include a variety of advanced topics related to the Holocaust. We are excited to host teachers from across the state who have already received some Holocaust education training and have implemented it in the classroom. Come together to further study and share your experiences, resources, and best practices with others!

This annual conference is intended for secondary school, community college, and university educators with less than five years of experience teaching about the Holocaust. Educators with more experience are also invited to attend. There are two tracks, one for English/language arts teachers (July 19–21) and one for social studies/history educators (July 23–25). Participants will work closely with Museum staff, historians, and expert educators; have exclusive access to Museum exhibitions when the Museum is closed to the public; obtain lesson plans that focus on teaching diverse audiences and the relevance of the Holocaust today; and network with educators from around the country. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and it ends on June 15. Participants are responsible for their transportation to and accommodations in Washington, DC. A limited number of scholarships are available to offset travel costs. There is no fee to attend the conference.

This seminar will familiarize students with classic works of Holocaust historiography as well as with newer works that challenge old interpretations and methodologies. We will investigate debates about the origins and historicization of the Holocaust; the role of Hitler in decision-making and the Nazi bureaucracy; the development of antisemitism; the uses of sources, from archival documents to victim testimony; theories of genocide and colonialism; comparative genocide; memory and the “myth of silence”; and other themes. Readings will ask how historians can write a narrative reconstruction of events while “probing the limits of representation,” in the words of Saul Friedländer.
