How to Talk to Your Kids About the Holocaust

Join Simone Schweber, Goodman Chair of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in this interactive workshop where we’ll combine pair-and-share, small-group work, and lecture to figure out how to talk to young kids about the Holocaust and other difficult topics.
This workshop is designed to make sure that, as parents or educators of young children, we’re balancing the competing pressures of protecting our little ones’ idealism with being truthful about historical harms. In these tough times, learn how to approach your child with age-appropriate information, address the tough questions, and shut down conversations you feel your child is not yet ready to hear or may not be worth opening up in the midst of a global pandemic.
