Until very recently, the field of Holocaust Education has relied heavily on survivor testimony and on the ability to find opportunities for school children to meet with survivors. Now, even those survivors who were children during the Holocaust are quite elderly and many are unable to continue speaking publicly. This short talk will explore several ways in which organizations and educational institutions are responding to this situation through the use of technology (including social media), innovative storytelling, and art in order to keep this history relevant and immediate for the students of today.
Sharon Tash is the Director of Education at Temple Micah in Washington, DC.
Trained in the field of Jewish History, Sharon worked as an historian on the founding staff of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and as Upper School Faculty in the Jewish History Department at the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, Maryland before serving as an experiential educator, family educator and curriculum specialist at Temple Beth Ami in Rockville, Maryland for 21 years.
