The Holocaust: What Teens and Tweens Should Know!

The history of the Holocaust is difficult to learn, difficult to grasp, and difficult to teach. But – to prevent it from happening again – it is history that demands our examination! Join Linda Lacour Hobar, author of The Mystery of History, for a pensive look at the Holocaust and what teens and tweens should know about it. This workshop will touch on Hitler’s ideology and the repercussions of it, as well as the bravery of those who stood against it. Let us learn what NOT to repeat in history! (This workshop, with slides for the visual learner, may not be appropriate for young or sensitive students.)

(Teens and ‘tweens—don’t miss this one!)
