New approaches to Holocaust education

Wednesday 27 January 2021

4pm to 5pm

Discover how new perspectives on Holocaust education can engage young people with this vitally important period in history, with Christine Berberich from the University of Portsmouth.

Over a number of years the University of Portsmouth and Mayville High School have collaborated on a project that sees students take part in activities themed around Holocaust teaching. The result is creative work and portfolios that allows the students to work through their own emotive responses to studying the Holocaust.

Each year the work has been displayed at The D-Day Story, Portsmouth on Holocaust Memorial Day. This year the museum is closed because of Covid-19, but this virtual talk will give an insight into the process for anyone with an interest in Holocaust education.

Dr Christine Berberich is Reader in Literature at the University of Portsmouth. She has published widely in the broad area of 20th and 21st century English and European literature. Her current research focuses in particular on Holocaust Literatures and cultural commemoration.
