The Future of Holocaust Education in the United States
October 14 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PMFree
Dr. Daniel Aschheim (Consul for Public Diplomacy at the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest), Regine Schlesinger (veteran WBBM journalist) and Dr. Luke Berryman (Founder of The Ninth Candle) gather for a fascinating roundtable discussion.
October 14th marks the 78th anniversary of the prisoner uprising in the Sobibor extermination camp. On this day, we ask: what is the future of Holocaust education in the United States, and how can we work together to end antisemitism? This unique event will appeal to anyone interested in the history of the Holocaust; in diversity, inclusion, and equity in contemporary America; and in sustaining and improving community relations. It will also be of interest to students and educators of all levels.
