How to Talk to Your Kids about the Holocaust

Date(s) - Wednesday, April 1st
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Jewish Museum Milwaukee

Join Simone Schweber, Chair of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in this interactive workshop where we’ll combine pair-and-share, small-group work, open large-group discussion and lecture to figure out how to talk to young kids about the Holocaust—yours or others.

The workshop is designed to make sure that as parents or educators of young children, we’re balancing the competing pressures of protecting our little ones’ idealism and being truthful about historical harms of the past and present. 

FREE and Open to the Public
