This adult seminar is an introductory course in the history of the Holocaust from its beginnings in antisemitism through the Final Solution.  Participants will investigate the roles, choices, and behaviors observed during the Holocaust and how we can apply them to contemporary issues.  Over the course of the three sessions, participants will participate in a docent-led tour of HMTC’s state-of-the-art museum and hear testimony from a Holocaust Survivor.  Additionally, participants will sit-in on a panel in which Second Generation Holocaust Survivors will discuss their experiences as children of Holocaust Survivors and how it has affected their lives from the professions they have chosen to the way they work to prevent hate every day.  Light breakfast, lunch, and materials included.
