Program: 8:30 p.m.

How can you address the history of antisemitism and the dangers you see today with your children? Where do they see the Holocaust as relevant to their own lives? As children learn about the complexity of the Holocaust in their classrooms, they grapple with important questions about human behavior, the fragility of society, and the consequences of indifference. Outside of school, these connections may raise further questions as they observe the actions of others through their newfound historical lens. 

Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum for a special reception and discussion on the new challenges and opportunities for Holocaust education presented by Gretchen Skidmore, director of Education Initiatives in the Levine Institute for Holocaust Education.
