A picture is worth a thousand words. The “Light from the Yellow Star” Workshop was developed by Nancy Gorrell and Evelyn Rauch as part of the outreach program of the Holocaust Memorial and Education Center at the Shimon and Sara Birnbaum Jewish Community Center in Bridgewater. The workshop is designed to teach middle and high school students about the Holocaust using imagery and text to evoke a personal response to the lessons of the Holocaust. Evelyn Rauch will instruct the teachers step by step on how to teach this workshop to their own students. Teachers will each create artwork and participate in a discussion about its meaning. A list of materials and information about downloading the book will be provided after registration. This professional development program is free, on Zoom, and open to the public. (Recommended for Middle and High School Teachers, Grades 7-12) This program is being co-sponsored by The Holocaust Resource Center at Kean University.
