“Kristallnacht: A Teachable Moment”
Webinar by Echoes & Reflections
“Our webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
Kristallnacht is often viewed as a turning point. On the night of November 9, 1938, the persecution of the Jews became dramatically visible and undeniable. Marking the anniversary of Kristallnacht presents a unique teachable moment: what happens when people are deprived of basic rights and others stand by without taking action? How does escalation occur? Why is it so important to fight hatred? This webinar, presented by Sheryl Ochayon of Yad Vashem, will explore these issues.”
