Learn about the intersections between the Nuremberg Laws in Nazi Germany and Jim Crow practices in the United States in this program. The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center’s Director of Education, Jodi Elowitz in dialogue with CEO, Sarah Weiss, will examine how the Nazis looked to discriminatory legal policies in the United States, including the Jim Crow Laws, as they constructed their own racial policies targeting Jews during the Holocaust. We will also explore how these histories of hate and oppression are linked and have lasting impacts that are still with us today.

A workshop designed for educators, parents and community leaders which will explore an age-appropriate approach to teaching about the Holocaust. These difficult and emotional concepts require a deep understanding of child development as well as communal responsibility. They will also discuss strategies for having conversations about contemporary antisemitism which comes up almost on a daily basis somewhere around the world. In these complicated times, this interactive, engaging workshop will offer ideas for meaningful dialogue, resources and support.
