• Tour of the new special exhibition, Americans and the Holocaust, which examines the motives, pressures, and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war, and genocide.
• Participants will be given lesson plans to help their students explore questions that the exhibition raises, such as: What did the United States government and the American people know about the threats posed by Nazi Germany, and when?
• Discussion on the effective teaching of contemporary antisemitism.
