Penn and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of Philadelphia presented a half-day workshop to introduce teachers and future teachers to “Echoes and Reflections,” a multimedia Holocaust education curriculum designed by the ADL and the USC Shoah Foundation Institute.

“Echoes and Reflections” links Holocaust education to the importance of challenging bias, bigotry, and scapegoating in society today.

Workshop participants included Philadelphia public school teachers enrolled in Penn English Professor Al Filreis’ “Teaching the Holocaust: Bearing Witness” class, part of Teachers Institute Philadelphia. Several students from Penn’s Graduate School of Education also attended.
