Teaching the Shoah: Mandate and Momentum
Today, more than 80 years after the Holocaust/Shoah, the events surrounding Hitler’s campaign of murder have not receded into the distance, but remain memorialized in multiple venues, both scholarly and popular. This volume is an anthological collection of essays and creative pieces showcasing the pedagogical issues related to the Nazi genocide. It addresses the field of Shoah education, featuring new and novel ways to promote awareness of the reality of the genocide, as well as an understanding of the instrumentalities (both philosophical and physical) which drove and concretized it. In addition to serious academic contributions, this volume features a play, a short story, and a discussion of the use of educational video in an online environment. It provides insight into the overarching question: how can and should the Shoah be taught, and what approaches can be utilized in sharing the most important lessons of this most unspeakable example of ethnic cleansing in human history?
