How Museums Teach the Holocaust: A Brief Overview

A lecture presentation by

Dr. Linda F. Burghardt, Scholar-in-Residence, Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center

Wednesday, June 12, 2:00 p.m.

Field trips to Holocaust centers often stand out as highlights of the school year. But how do program directors, facilitators and docents at the centers determine what material to present, how best to engage the students and how to make their programs most effective? Dr. Linda Burghardt recently performed an in-depth study among several prominent Holocaust centers in the U.S. and will share her findings at this talk. How do we at the HMTC compare?  Most favorably!

$10 suggested donation. Please RSVP to info@hmtcli.org or (516) 571-8040.

Dr. Linda Burghardt, the Scholar-in-Residence at the Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center, is a journalist and author from Great Neck, N.Y.
