COUNTERING ANTISEMITISM WITH TESTIMONY
September 5th, 2023
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST
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.
Antisemitic incidents, including violent acts, in the United States have been on a sharp rise since 2016. These incidents often begin and are roused in subtle ways – from biased remarks and stereotypes to silence and complacency. These incidents target and harm Jewish individuals and communities and threaten the well-being of society. Testimony can provide students with a human face to those directly impacted by antisemitism, fostering empathy and inspiring students to speak out against antisemitism in their community and beyond.
Tune in to this webinar from Sedda Antekelian, Senior Learning & Development Specialist at USC Shoah Foundation, to learn how the use of testimony and resources from the Gringlas Unit on Contemporary Antisemitism in Echoes & Reflections can develop student’s ability to recognize and respond to antisemitism and inspire them to act. Educators will learn strategies using testimonies that illustrate antisemitism in the past and present to engage students to think critically about this issue.
