These one-day, multi-county workshops are for middle and high school social studies and English/language arts teachers. Workshop presenter Dr. Peter Stein (UNC-CH, emeritus, Holocaust scholar and child survivor) will be joined by either Esther Lederman, a Holocaust survivor who will recount her experiences in hiding for 22 months, or Abe Piasek, who will recount his Holocaust experiences surviving the Auschwitz concentration camp.
Participants will receive a copy of The Holocaust: a North Carolina Teacher’s Resource, a guide for teaching about the Holocaust at middle and high school levels. There is no cost to attend the workshop, and substitute pay is provided. Teachers also will receive .6 CEUs. Space is limited so prompt registration is encouraged.

– April 12, Chapel Hill-Carrboro (Orange County)
– April 19, Rocky Mount (Nash County).
