Auschwitz: The Past is Present ITeach Professional Development January 2015
Taking place in Poland January 24-27, 2015, the program marks 70 years since the
Auschwitz camp complex was liberated. The joint effort is designed to promote a
deeper understanding of 20th century history and its continuing relevance, hone
digital literacy and critical thinking skills using real-world applications and
audiovisual testimony, and inspire action against racism, intolerance, and prejudice
and the suffering they cause.
Throughout September 2014, we received applications from educators around the world
who are hoping to participate in this exciting program.
The group of 25 teachers chosen for this once-in-a-lifetime experience will be announced
