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 soon.
