The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, in cooperation with the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education, invites you to attend a one day professional development workshop focused on contextualizing the voyage of the St. Louis within the larger conversation of global refugees and immigrants during the Holocaust.
The workshop is open to Middle School and High School educators and includes the opportunity to meet Eva Wiener, a survivor of the St. Louis, and hear her testimony of the voyage. Educators will participate in sessions and receive books and resources from the USHMM and Chhange for teaching the history of immigration & refugees of World War II and today. There will also be the opportunity to tour Journeys Beyond Genocide: The Human Experience, Chhange’s core exhibit created to preserve and share the life stories of local Holocaust & genocide survivors with future generations.
5 hours of professional development, breakfast, & lunch will be provided.
