PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

THREE-DAY SUMMER SEMINAR FOR TEACHERS

Foundations for Genocide Studies:
Holocaust and Human Behaviour


JULY 10th - 12th, 2018 | 9 AM - 5 PM

VANCOUVER HOLOCAUST EDUCATION CENTRE

50–950 West 41ST Avenue, Vancouver


In today’s world, questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever. The history of genocide allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions raised by this history and fosters their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement — all of which are critical for sustaining democracy.

THREE-DAY SEMINAR FEE: $350.00*
REGISTRATION FEE: $50.00
Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
*Scholarships are available.


FEATURING:

A special lecture, on July 10th at 7 PM, with psychologist, scholar, and author of Not In My Family:Germany Responsibility After the Holocaust, Dr. Roger Frie, to explore the psychological and moral implications of memory against the backdrop of the Holocaust.
