Presented by Yad Vashem educator, Yoni Berrous, we will explore the tools created by the International School for Holocaust Studies to teach about the Holocaust without trivializing it. Join us to see how we can use these new technologies to make the memory of the Holocaust relevant to our students. The webinar will be held on Tuesday 26 April, 3 PM – 4 PM EST.

He never did. One week after his departure, the armies of Nazi Germany and of the Soviet Union invaded Poland. His return had become impossible. The Finkelsztejns tried to stay in contact via letters that became a bridge over the ever-widening gulf of the divergent environments in which they found themselves. Filled with affection, longing, memories, and worries for the future, the letters presented in Longing Overcomes Us poignantly reveal the increasing isolation, suffering, and despair of Jews under Nazi rule, and offer a glimpse into the souls of those who were torn from their loved ones.
