This year's symposium explores the multi-fold connections between the Holocaust and education. The free and open-to-the-public lectures, discussions and film screenings shed light on how the Nazi regime relied on schooling to secure support for its racist policies, demonstrate how persecuted European Jews enlisted education as a form of spiritual resistance and explore how school systems in North America and Europe teach histories of the Holocaust today.
Roberta Grossman and Nancy Spielberg's Award-Winning Film “Who Will Write Our History” (2019) focuses on a group of Jews imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto who risked their lives so that the truth about the Nazi regime’s genocide would survive, even if they did not.
Susan Warsinger, a child survivor of the Holocaust, will shed light on the rise of anti-Semitic hate speech and mass violence in 1930s Germany.

Her talk is part of the 18th Annual Martin and Doris Rosen Summer Symposium: Education During and After the Holocaust.

This year's theme, "Creating a Resilient Energy Future," is a direct response to the need for us to adapt to changing markets, weather patterns and technologies.
