“Do Not Say They Cannot Hear Us”: THGC Interdisciplinary Workshop on Teaching the Holocaust and Genocides

The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission (THGC) offers this free, one-day, live workshop to public and private school educators. The workshop will introduce relevant TEKS; provide an overview of vocabularies and histories; explore contemporary issues in historiography, literary/artistic representation, and pedagogical approaches; and showcase resources with Texas connections.  This workshop marks the unveiling of the Texas Tech/THGC Texas Liberator App, a brand new, free resource designed to teach Texas students about the Holocaust.  Dr. Aliza Wong will lead participants on a tour of the museum's Texas Liberator exhibit.  Educators in attendance will also gain access to the THGC's free, password-protected digital library of filmic and textual materials.
