2018 marks the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass” when the Nazis and their supporters destroyed thousands of Jewish synagogues and businesses, and attacked many Jewish citizens. In commemoration of Kristallnacht, the theme for this year’s Day of Learning focused on breaking points in history and standing up against hate.
At the Day of Learning, students (grades 7-12) and educators from all public and private schools throughout California are invited to gain a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide in order to inspire moral courage and social responsibility in the future.
Presented each spring in San Francisco, more than 700 students and teachers from 120 different schools participate annually in the Day of Learning.
The JFCS Holocaust Center invites schools and youth groups to join us as partners for the Day of Learning. To learn more about this partnership opportunity, contact Nikki Bambauer at 415-449-3717 or NikkiB@jfcs.org.
