“Genocide Studies 101”
April 11, 2014 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Location Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multi-Purpose Learning Center
How did “Never Again” turn into “Ever Again”? As part of Genocide Awareness Month activities, Holocaust Museum Houston will provide this one-day workshop examining the development of the controversial definition of genocide and providing backgrounds to genocides that have occurred since the Holocaust, including Rwanda and Darfur. Rwandan genocide survivor Yannick Tona wil lmake a private presentation on his story and the need for youth engagement. In his talk, “A Survivor’s Journey to Inspire,” Tona will share the story of his family’s struggle to survive the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, the lessons he learned from seeing prejudice at its most extreme and his subsequent determination to make the world a better place. Time will also be spent considering the concept of “responsibility to protect” and the roles of the various levels of the U.S. government that are involved in genocide prevention. Using primary source materials and film segments, participants will be prepared to make pedagogical choices as they implement studies related to genocide. This program will meet the TEKS requirements for social studies (particularly world history) and English/language arts teachers in grades three through 12. Art and music educators who wish to incorporate these histories in their studies may also wish to consider attending. This workshop has been approved by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented for five hours in creativity and instructional strategies. The fee for this program is $20 per person, which includes workshop materials but not lunch. Registration is limited to 40 people, and must be received by April 4, 2014.
