How these teachers learned to teach the Holocaust





NEW YORK (JTA) — When Megan Corbin was in school, she learned about the Holocaust as an optimistic story. Her grade school, she said, “highlighted Anne Frank as the voice of hope, and that really wasn’t the reality.”

Now, as an eighth-grade language arts teacher outside of Seattle, she teaches about victims, perpetrators and civilians who were bystanders to the genocide or who rescued Jews.  Next year, Corbin plans to devote more time to examining Jewish life in Europe before 1939, and the context that allowed the Holocaust to occur.

New York. Kada je  Megan Corbin  bila  školarka učila je o Holokaustu na optimistički način , tada se pokazivao primjer Ane Frank kao glas nade, ali da to nije bila stvarnost. Sada,  na studiju za učitelje  ona podučava  o žrtvama, počiniteljima i civilima koji su bili samo promatrači genocida ili koji su spašavali Židove...Slijedeće godine će više vremena posvetiti istraživanju židovskog života u Europi prije 1939. i prilika koje su dovele do Holokausta.

“To understand the Holocaust is not just to understand what happened during the years we talk about,” she said. “It’s to understand a much broader context of what happened before, and understand anti-Semitism and … how it was so ingrained into society. It didn’t just happen out of thin air.”

Da se razumije Holokaust  nije dovoljno razumijeti što se dogodilo  u tim godinama, treba razumijeti mnogo širi kontekst što se događalo ranije i kako se antisemitizma ugradio u društvo- nije se to dogodilo odjednom.

Corbin was one of 23 teachers who attended a seminar in New York this week on how to teach the Holocaust to public school students. The program aimed to expand the educators’ understanding beyond, as one teacher put it, “boxcars from Berlin to Birkenau,” and give students pedagogical tools to communicate the scope and depth of one of history’s worst humanitarian crimes.....

Eight states now mandate genocide education beginning in either kindergarten or middle school, and running through high school. Legislators from 20 additional states have pledged to introduce legislation that would require public schools to teach about the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide and other genocides...
