Event description

Description

How can we use first-person accounts effectively in the classroom, in art and in literature?

What is the future of Holocaust education and the place of testimony in it?

'Testimony in Practice' is an event in two parts. In the first we will hear about work-in-progress by Romanian and German novelist Carmen-Francesca Banciu who is writing her next book on Kindertransportees, trauma and reconciliation. In the second, a panel of experts will discuss a new set of resources for using testimony in teaching about the Holocaust. The resources were developed in co-operation with the Holocaust Educational Trust, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, and National Holocaust Centre and Museum. Attendees are welcome to join us for part or all of the evening. The teaching resources are available to download here .
