The International School for Holocaust Studies

e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators

Welcome to the 22nd issue of Teaching the Legacy. This edition is a continuation of the topic addressed in our previous e-newsletter "Jews in Southeast Europe." In this issue we will focus on the unique Jewish communities in Ioannina, Greece, and Albania. The e-newsletter includes a main article on the uplifting story of Albania, as well as an interview with Artemis Batis Miron, a survivor from Ioannina’s Romaniote Jewish community. Included is also a story about an artifact from Bulgaria, with an explanation about how it can be used in the classroom. The newsletter features new publications, book reviews, and updates on recent and upcoming activities at the International School for Holocaust Studies and across Yad Vashem. We hope you find this issue interesting and resourceful and we look forward to your feedback.
