Event description
Virtual Teacher Workshop: Using Photographs in Teaching about the Holocaust

About this Event

Using sources from The Wiener Holocaust Library’s unique archive of material on the Nazi era and the Holocaust, this virtual workshop will critically consider the use of photographs in Holocaust education.

The workshop will use a range of contemporary images taken before, during and after the Holocaust to explore how these historical sources can be used effectively in the classroom. We will also examine the ethics of using photographs of victims; the motivations of the photographers; the context within which photographs were produced, and issues around editing and format of images. We will help participants to reflect upon the ways in which photographs can be used to deepen school students’ understanding of the Holocaust without compromising the humanity of the victims.

The workshop is aimed at British secondary school teachers and educators, and will be led by Dr Barbara Warnock, the Library’s Head of Education and Senior Curator, Roxzann Baker, who coordinates the Library’s online educational resource The Holocaust Explained, and Elise Bath, one of the Library’s Senior International Tracing Service Archive Researchers.
