Holocaust By Bullets: A Workshop for Middle & High School Teachers

Sunday, March 26, 2017


Jewish Museum Milwaukee

1360 N Prospect Ave – Milwaukee

Join us for a compelling workshop designated for Wisconsin middle and high school teachers, that studies the distinct features of the Holocaust in the Nazi-occupied Soviet territories.  Acclaimed historian Dr. Waitman Beorn, author of “Marching into Darkness: The Wehrmacht and the Holocaust in Belarus,” will be leading this exploration of mass shooting operations, carried out by the Nazis, before the implementation of the Final Solution.  The workshop constitutes a great introduction to the Holocaust By Bullets exhibit.

FREE and includes lunch and a complimentary copy of “Holocaust By Bullets: A Priest’s Journey to Uncover the Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 Million Jews”

RSVP to Brittany Hager McNeely at 414-963-2714 or BrittanyH@MilwaukeeJewish.org
