Music as a Medium for Teaching the Holocaust – Fall Workshops for Educators
This workshop is presented by Facing History and Ourselves and Jewish Family and Children’s Services Holocaust Center in partnership with Violins of Hope and Music at Kohl Mansion.
How is history shaped by hatred, indifference, and denial, as well as by caring, compassion, and responsibility?
All Bay Area educators (grades 7-12) are invited to an interactive workshop about music as tool for resistance and survival in the Holocaust. Teach the Holocaust through the lens of humanities or art.
This workshop will feature the Violins of Hope and we will explore the role music and instruments played in sustaining the human spirit and resisting oppression. The Violins of Hope is a collection of violins recovered from the Holocaust, some of which were played by Jewish prisoners in concentration camps.
This workshop will include: Holocaust Survivor testimony, resources for your classroom, and dinner.
Educators who attend either of the workshops will have the opportunity to bring the Violins of Hope musical performance to their schools.
