One of the foundational missions of the Stan Greenspon Center is to educate and inform all people about the complex history of the Holocaust and how that history continues to affect our world today. We work diligently to provide teacher education, school programs, and community events to engage all ages in this topic.
Centropa: Holocaust, History, Digital Literacy and the Global Classroom
Led by Lauren Granite, Centropa’s US Education Director
Centropa (www.centropa.org) offers free educational resources based on their interviews with 1,200 elderly Jews in Central and Eastern European countries. This series will introduce you to their interviews, photographs, and short films, and include classroom lessons presented by teachers. Topic: September: Introduction to Centropa; October: Kristallnacht/Kindertransport; November: Holocaust in Hungary; December: Sephardic Jews of the Balkans.
Women of the Resistance: Fierce Females
Led by Sheryl Ochayon from Yad Vashem September 22, 2020 Virtual: 12:00 - 1:00pm
Women were often at the very heart of resistance, whether spiritual, cultural, or armed. We will focus on the role of women, especially the part they played in armed resistance. This story has largely remained in the shadows or, perhaps, been overshadowed by the stories of armed resistance in the ghettos of Europe. Yet it is a story of incredible bravery exhibited by a group of Jewish girls and women. We will tell their stories.

Dr. Felsen Webinar Series
Anxiety and Other Post-Traumatic Reactions in Survivors of the Holocaust
How do we cope with life’s difficult transitions and times of crisis? Children of survivors have inherited much of their parent’s “hardening” or “steeling” resiliencies and abilities that have led them to many successes in multiple areas of life.
Tue, Dec 08
Dr. Felsen Webinar Series
Intimacy and Trauma
Marriages of survivors were often based on things other than romantic love, and modeling of the expression of sexuality and intimacy in couples was not often part of family life.
Wed, Dec 09

A special program presented by Avital Meirzon, MSL, CCTP. Self-care can lead you toward happier and healthier lives. Mindfulness will help you lower your stress levels, decrease loneliness, improve attention and manage chronic pain.

The Relationships Between Adult Siblings (2Gs) in Holocaust families: Resentments and cut-offs.
