The Anti-Defamation League and the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education have partnered for a second year with KCPT to host Echoes and Reflections, a multimedia program that provides US secondary educators with professional development and print and online resources to teach about the Holocaust in today’s classrooms. This no-cost, day long workshop opportunity for area teachers provides the tools they need to help today’s students study the Holocaust as a significant event in human history, recognize the complexity of individual choices, and to define the role and responsibility of the individual to uphold the principles of a democracy.
I just wanted to thank you again for such an amazing workshop yesterday. I feel blessed to have met Sonia Warshawski and her daughter Regina Kort as well and the presenters Tabari Coleman from the Anti-Defamation League who traveled from St. Louis to work with us. I think what you’re doing is an amazing thing, and teachers definitely appreciate the opportunity to “get smarter”!

Last October, area educators participating in the training heard a personal account from Holocaust survivor Sonia Warshawski, along with her daughter Regina Kort. All educators who attend the workshop will receive a complimentary copy of the Echoes and Reflections Teacher’s Resource Guide and access to professional development credit.
