Americans and the Holocaust: War and Genocide

October 24, 2019
Location: Webinar
Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

What was America’s involvement in WWII? In this webinar, hear from the curator of the USHMM’s new exhibition Americans and The Holocaust, Dr. Rebecca Erbelding, about America’s motivations to enter the war. Learn how this decision reflected U.S. policies and the government’s response to news of increased Nazi brutality against the Jews in Europe. Gain access to USHMM’s History Unfolded project and resources from Echoes & Reflections to support classroom lessons on this topic.

Echoes and Reflections delivers value to both experienced Holocaust educators who are supplementing their curricula and for teachers new to Holocaust education.

Our webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
