Tucson Jewish Museum plans new Holocaust education workshops, co-sponsors festival films

The Tucson Jewish Museum & Holocaust Center will hold a new session of “Teaching the Holocaust: Spotlight on Southern Arizona Survivors” on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 4-7 p.m. The virtual workshop will be led by TJMHC’s four Museum Teaching Fellows and is open to all middle school and high school English/language arts and social studies teachers, regardless of whether they attended the Oct. 27 workshop. The Jan. 25 workshop will include a presentation by Holocaust survivor Robert Varady, a professor at the University of Arizona who was born in 1943 in Budapest, Hungary. His presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. Register here.

Museum Teaching Fellow Kim Klett will follow up the “Teaching the Holocaust” workshop with two free Echoes & Reflections webinars next month. On February 2, she will present “Analyzing Propaganda and Teaching Media Literacy” and on Feb. 9 she will present “Spotlight on Contemporary Antisemitism.” These seminars will be held from 4-6 p.m., MST.

The Museum also will partner in presenting three films in the Tucson International Jewish Film Festival, “Thou Shalt Not Hate,” “Tiger Within” and “Masel Tov Cocktail,” as well as a post-film program with Kim Klett, Museum Teaching Fellow. For more information, visit
