The Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) announces the 2009 Jack and Anita Hess Seminar for Faculty, which is designed for professors of all disciplines who are teaching or preparing to teach Holocaust or genocide-related courses and wish to further their understanding of this critical topic. This year's Seminar analyzes the Holocaust within the broader historical context of genocides of the modern era by focusing on the ethical dilemmas and legal issues surrounding these events.
The Seminar is scheduled for January 5–9, 2009, and will be co-led by John K. Roth, Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Claremont McKenna College, and Donald Bloxham, Professor of Modern History at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom.
