Holocaust Workshop Hosted by UAH

In January, the History Department and the Division of Professional and Continuing Studies at UAH hosted a professional development workshop for 75 middle and high school teachers from across North Alabama. The workshop entitled "Teaching the Complexities of the Holocaust" provided teachers with resources and approaches to teach the complexities of the Holocaust. The regional educators from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum facilitated the workshop, and our own Dr. Johnson hosted the event. The workshop was one of four held across Alabama as part of a series organized by the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center, the Alabama Holocaust Commission, and the USHMM.
