UMass Amherst’s Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies Offers Docent Training for High School Students
AMHERST, Mass. – The Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst will offer a training session on Wednesday, Aug. 22 from noon to 2:30 p.m. for high school students interested in learning how to lead their 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, Anne Stagg, the workshop will introduce students to the exhibition and its origins and 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. The institute is located at 758 North Pleasant St.
