Regional Holocaust and Genocide Initiative: Resistance, Resilience, and Responsibility
The human catastrophe of genocide scarred the 20th century world and tragically continues to open wounds old and new in the 21st, but it remains conspicuously understudied in K-12 curricula. The Regional Holocaust and Genocide Initiative seeks to enhance education, cultural production, and public memory about the incidence of genocide - past and present. Faculty and student participants will conduct curriculum research and develop coursework for grades K-6, and implement existing curriculum in grades 7-12, with support from the Spector/Warren Fellowship, which prepares SU students to teach about the Holocaust and genocide. Music, visual and dramatic arts events, including collaborations with the College of Visual and Performing Arts, will broaden the project beyond the curriculum into public dialogues on law, justice, and ethics.
