Hindsight is 2020: Modernizing Holocaust Education for 2020 and Beyond

This discussion focuses on one potential way of modernizing Holocaust education to better deal with the realities of life in 2020: the inclusion of perpetrator narratives. We will have a broad discussion of some of the typical mediums and contexts of Holocaust education, and I will propose some ideas of how the inclusion of perpetrator narratives, long ignored, will help bolster students’ understanding of the Holocaust, its role in Jewish history, and our contemporary relationship with it.
