Abstract:

The 2012 Ethel LeFrak Holocaust Education Conference brought together well-known scholars who shared their research and reflections about what the Holocaust has to teach students about the dangers of dictatorship and apathy in the face of prejudice. Another purpose of the conference was to inform participants about the 1994 genocide in Rwanda so that teachers can better incorporate teaching about this horrific event into their curricula. The essays in this book are intended to educate and encourage students and others who may be in situations to see, judge, and act on behalf of those whose lives are in danger. Studying about the Holocaust should encourage the people to help others in need.
