Between 1933 and 1945 more than 400 anti-Jewish decrees and regulations were enacted and enforced in Nazi Germany and Nazi-occupied territories. These measures restricted all aspects of a Jewish person’s professional and personal life, ultimately contributing to the Holocaust and the murder of six million Jews. In this session, educators will learn about and examine forty of those laws and discuss how the legal system can perpetuate or prevent discrimination, persecution, and genocide, and the importance of civic responsibility and engagement. Educators who attend this professional development are encouraged to have their students submit an entry into the Jakob and Sala Kryszek Art and Writing Competition.
