The Holocaust: Reaching a New Generation
“America and the Holocaust” is a new approach to teaching the lessons learned from history, while reaching a younger, broader audience. Written by historian Barbara Burstin, who teaches at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, the “graphic booklet” focuses on the need to combat hate and bigotry. It also examines what the United States did – and didn’t do – for European Jews.
