The Holocaust and the Jewish State
Thursday, March 30, 2023
4:30 - 7:00pm
St. Augustine Preparatory School
611 Cedar Avenue
This seminar will examine one of the most controversial questions in Jewish studies:
how much, if at all, did the Holocaust influence the creation of the Jewish state?
In addition, the seminar will touch on the struggle of Holocaust survivors in Israel, as well as the intra-Israeli conflicts that began 100 years ago, which to a large extent, have yet to be resolved.

With fewer than half of the states requiring Holocaust studies in the schools, how do we confront the need for comprehensive and effective teaching of this monumental historical event?
With Holocaust themes and applications to current global events, we must analyze, confront, and pressure educators to implement more than just a token application of this history.
The question then is how do we approach this history with a structure, and sources, and recommendations for best practices?
This workshop will only begin the quest to search for answers that will encourage not only teachers and school districts to recognize the needs, but also supply them with the tools and skills to teach the history of the Holocaust and its themes more confidently.
A free brunch and in person presentation by Mark Halawa.

"We really need to change what it means to be an American."
Mika Osaki, from the documentary
"And since a dead man has no substance unless one actually sees him dead, a hundred million corpses broadcast through history are no more than a puff of smoke in the imagination."
"This is the time when those who have nothing to do venture out on the boulevards. Most of them determined to counteract the plague by a lavish display of luxury."
