In May 2017, Simon Li, (HKHTC Director of Education and Anne Frank House’s Visiting Educator), Ephraim Kaye (Yad Vashem’s Director of International Seminars for Educators) and Glenn Timmermans (University of Macau’s Professor and HKHTC Board Director) travelled to China to present several workshops at the International School of Dongguan (ISD) for teachers and educators in the region and neighbouring
districts.

HKHTC’s workshops for the local and expatriate teachers in the Guangdong Province include: “How to Teach the Holocaust: Victims,
Perpetrators, Bystanders”, “The Decision to Kill the Jews: The Final Solution and its Implementation”, “The History of Antisemitism”, as
well as “Confronting the Phenomenon of Holocaust Denial: A Workshop”. In our workshop series in early May, there were more than 30 educators who took part in our Teacher Training Workshops. Then in our subsequent follow-up workshop series in late May, the number of
educator participants rose to around 60. The school has invited HKHTC to return to Dongguan next year again for more Teacher Training
Workshops.

Teachers Workshop Why Teach Holocaust

2017-01-18T14:36:28+08:00Tags: , |

The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. Yet why, as educators, should we teach it? In what ways is its scrutiny relevant to contemporary life? Are there valuable “lessons” it holds? To answer these questions, the Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre hosted a special workshop led by Ephraim Kaye, Director of International Seminars at Yad Vashem—Israel’s Holocaust Museum—and a world-renowned Holocaust educator.
