The Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre, Facing History and Ourselves and Asia Society are offering a one-day workshop that prepares teachers to interweave a literary analysis of Elie Wiesel’s powerful and poignant memoir with an exploration of the relevant historical context underlying Wiesel’s experience. The accompanying teaching guide explores the central questions: How is our identity shaped and reshaped by the circumstances we encounter? How do tragedy and trauma influence an individual’s identity and choices? Workshop participants will:

– Learn a range of teaching strategies for students to process emotionally powerful materials
– Learn about classroom-ready multimedia tools and resources
– Receive a hard copy of the teaching guide

To register, please go to: https://www.facinghistory.org/calendar/w2019chn1-teaching-night-elie-wiesel

PLEASE NOTE: All participants are required to read or re-read Night by Elie Wiesel before the workshop. Our work together will rely on participants having recently read the book. We are pleased to offer a discount book through Bleak House Books. Please contact Albert Wan for more information: https://www.bleakhousebooks.com.hk/contact.php
