This day-long professional development workshop investigates the European Jewish refugee crisis during World War II. Staff from the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect will model how to teach The Diary of Anne Frank with an eye towards understanding the attempts made by Otto Frank to gain asylum for his family in the United States. Hasia R. Diner, Paul and Sylvia Steinberg Professor of American Jewish History and the Director of the Goldstein-Goren Center of American Jewish History at New York University, will discuss the refugee crisis from the American perspective. Educators are encouraged to attend the screening of No Asylum on February 25.
The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education is pleased to partner with the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, the Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study at Drew University, and the Goldstein Goren Center for American Jewish History at New York University to bring this professional development workshop to campus.
Lunch and a certificate of program completion will be provided. This event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
