The International School for Holocaust Studies

e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators

Welcome to the 14th issue of Teaching the Legacy. This issue focuses on the Kristallnacht pogrom, as we commemorated its 70th anniversary year. Translated as the “Night of Broken Glass,” this night and the following day – November 9-10, 1938 – marked a watershed moment in the escalation of Nazi antisemitic policy, which eventually led to the Holocaust. Our newsletter features an article on teaching the subject and some of its lessons in the classroom, an interview with a Holocaust survivor who recalls the Kristallnacht pogrom period, and a ceremony that may be used with students to commemorate the event. Also included are our regular updates on activities at the International School, within Yad Vashem, and book reviews. We hope you find this issue interesting and resourceful, and we look forward to your feedback.
