Big History, Small Town

As the study of history past elementary education continues to decline, the Center for Holocaust Education seeks to encourage scholarship and remembrance of an important time period through alternative learning expe- riences. By understanding past discriminatory events, citizens have the opportunity to learn from tragedy and promote equality now and into the future.

To promote continued learning, the Center for Holocaust Education will hold its second annual Holocaust Edu- cation and Communication Conference in Easton, Pennsylvania on November 14 and 15, 2015.

  • WHO: Members of the Center for Holocaust Education, CHE summer fellows and community residents.

  • WHAT: A weekend-long conference allowing CHE summer fellows to present their research findings regarding communication and the Holocaust. Tickets available on www.che.org starting at $50.00/person.

  • WHERE: The Easton Hotel, 123 College Hill Road, Easton, Pa.

  • WHEN: 10:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday, November 14 and Sunday, November 15. The weekend will be broken into programs and discussions, with each session taking about an hour. Breakfast will be served before programs begin, and there will be breaks for lunch and dinner each day.

  • WHY: The conference will provide the summer fellows the opportunity to discuss their research and interests with an engaged audience while simultaneously introducing community members to a new cultural and historical experience. Booklets containing pertinent information regarding the relevance of the Holocaust, as well as learning tool links and research guides for the public, will be provided to the conference guests.

Janell Neider, head of the Holocaust Education and Communication Conference, will be available throughout the day for press interviews.
