Objectives:

It is the purpose of the sessions of the Institute to enhance for the participants the following:

  • Knowledge of the History of the Holocaust, its accurate and precise documentation, timeline of events, glossary, and historical relevance to society today.
  • Awareness of the major critical ethical and moral issues raised in the study of the Holocaust through institute participation dialogue and literature analysis.
  • Ability for developing sound pedagogical practices for teaching the Holocaust in all grade levels where appropriate.
  • Familiarity with the wealth and scope of primary historical documents, literature, materials, and resources that will augment a study of the Holocaust.
  • Understanding of the Holocaust and its implications for today, by meeting Holocaust Survivors and hearing their first-hand testimony, how they survived and persevered.

Design of The Institute

The Institute will take place virtually, on line through Zoom beginning Sunday evening June 13th and continuing tentatively, Monday, June 14th- Wednesday, June 16th, 2021.

The sessions will follow a format of historical lectures each morning by a visiting scholar of the Holocaust on the following topics:

  • History of Anti-Semitism; Nazi Racial Ideology;
  • The Development and Implementation of the Final Solution;
  • Life and Death in the Ghetto;
  • Resistance Movements;
  • Gentile Rescue during the Holocaust;
  • The Aftermath and Impact on Survivors and Their Children Today.

Afternoon sessions will focus on instructional strategies related to the content presented in the morning sessions.

All sessions will meet the standards and criteria of the mandate to teach the Holocaust in the state of Florida in the school system.

Teachers MUST apply on-line through Miami-Dade County Public Schools, to receive Master Plan Points. Jewish Day School teachers, Private School Teachers and the Community are invited to attend as well.
