Today’s teachers seek to address the Holocaust not just as history, but also in relation to current events. Featuring stories from middle, high school, and university classrooms across the United States, this collection offers a comprehensive argument for the inclusion of purposeful Holocaust pedagogy rooted in literacy practices and historic content. Each narrative addresses the reasons that teachers engage students in deep, emotional, and challenging inquiry; the struggles they encounter when broaching difficult content from the past and present; and what can happen when students have opportunities to raise their voices about issues of inequality, persecution, and remembrance. Grounded in the experiences and voices of classroom teachers who are actively navigating the challenges of teaching about the Holocaust, this book will help readers to teach a specific set of historic events while helping students address broader questions about responding to injustice.
