We are pleased to announce the publication of our latest book Holocaust Education: Challenges for the Future edited by Carol Rittner.
The book is a collection of scholarly essays presented at the 2012 Ethel Lefrak Holocaust Education Conference. The articles address the Nazi genocide in Europe known as the Holocaust and the genocide in Rwanda.
Featured scholars include Irving Greenberg, Yehuda Bauer, Eva Fogelman, Myrna Goldenberg, John T. Pawlikowski, Stephen D. Smith, John K. Roth, Joanne Weiner Rudof, James E. Waller, and Carl Wilkens. The book also features the Ethel Lefrak Outstanding Student Scholar Essays.
“The essays in Holocaust Education: Challenges for the Future are intended to educate and encourage students and others who may be ‘in extreme situations’ to see, judge, and act on behalf of those whose lives are in danger,” wrote Rittner.
“This book will be useful for educators, scholars and students studying the Holocaust and genocide,” said Wilda Kaylor, the Associate Director of the National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education (NCCHE) of Seton Hill University.
The book is accessible for both teachers and students. Each paper is followed by questions for discussion and a bibliography of readings for further study.
“We want to get the book into the hands of those who will use it,” said Kaylor.
Contact the NCCHE to order your copy of the book for $15.00 plus $5.00 for shipping and packaging.
