Holocaust Education Week
Holocaust Education Week 2013 explores different national, generational and cultural narratives of the Holocaust and its aftermath: the historical narratives of countries and regions where the Shoah occurred, the personal and collective narratives of individual survivors and communities who rebuilt themselves elsewhere in the world, and the next generations who will perpetuate their legacies. This year’s program focuses its lens on the dynamic process that unites historical events with personal experiences.
In honour of Canada’s chairmanship of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, HEW 2013 has assembled a group of outstanding national experts-in-residence.
Our scholar is Professor Harold Troper of the University of Toronto; educator is Jacqueline Celemencki of the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre; and artist is Rochelle Rubinstein, whose poignant visual narratives enhance our week of programming.
