The Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst is offering a training session on Wednesday, Dec. 5 from 3-4:30 p.m. for high school and college students interested in learning how to lead their student peers through the institute’s permanent Holocaust teaching exhibition, “A Reason to Remember: Roth, Germany, 1933-1942.”
Led by an experienced docent of the exhibit, this workshop will introduce students to the exhibition and its origins and will encourage further study and training in order to become student tour facilitators under the supervision of their teachers.
Upon completing the session, students will receive a certificate of attendance and an invitation to bring their classes and teachers back to the institute for a tour. Students who earn the certificate should contact their school administrators about receiving credit toward community service.
The workshop is free and light refreshments will be served. For inquiries and registration, call 413/835-0221 or send an e-mail to email@example.com
