March 20: Maltz Museum Workshop for Educators

Upcoming Educators Preview and Workshop

  Spots of Light: To Be a Woman in the Holocaust

 When: Wednesday, March 20
Where: The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage
Schedule: 3pm     Open House & Free Exploration of the Museum
4pm-6pm     Guest Lecture & Interactive Educator Workshop
Spots of Light is the first international exhibition to focus exclusively on women in the Holocaust. Telling the stories of victims and survivors, it emphasizes the daily acts of resistance women took to protect their families and live another day. Be among the first in Northeast Ohio to view this exhibit. Meet with Alexis Storch, Director of Educational Outreach at the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in Cincinnati, who will discuss the impact of gender studies on Holocaust research. With Alexis and staff from the Museum, we will explore the exhibition together and create a Readers Theater from the stories and images we encounter, a process that you can then use in the classroom with your students.
