The US Holocaust Memorial Museum announces the 2010 Silberman Seminar for University Faculty: Jewish Responses to the Holocaust: Teaching the Victims’ Perspective. The seminar will be held at the Museum, June 2–15 2010, and co-taught by Deborah Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies at Emory University, and Susan Suleiman, C. Douglas Dillon Professor of the Civilization of France and Comparative Literature at Harvard University.
For university faculty from all disciplines who are teaching or preparing to teach Holocaust or Holocaust-related courses, this year’s Seminar introduces participants to the variety of Jewish responses to the Holocaust—the largest victim group—and will equip instructors with the knowledge base and pedagogical techniques required to teach this complex topic. Lectures and discussions will include topics such as daily life under Nazi persecution, the Jewish community response to the Holocaust, Jewish writing in camps and ghettos, resistance, and post-war testimonies.
